Departing Bottas not a F1 phenomenon says Wolff

Toto Wolff says departing works Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas is “not a phenomenon” like 2021 title contenders Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. “I expect him to take the lead there,” said Mercedes boss Wolff. However, Wolff made the decision to promote the highly-regarded Mercedes junior and current Williams driver George Russell into Bottas’ seat for 2022. That he fits in well with the Mercedes system,” Wolff told Speed Week when asked about Russell. “We are very close and we exchange our ideas every day,” Wolff said when asked how long he thinks 36-year-old Hamilton will keep racing in Formula 1.
