Five contenders to replace Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes if he retires, from Norris joining Russell to shock Bottas return

LEWIS HAMILTON’s continued silence since the controversial end to the F1 season at the Abu Dhabi GP has sparked fresh speculation the Brit could quit. Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said his star driver was ‘disillusioned’ with how the race was ended as Max Verstappen’s victory saw him crowned world champion. Here SunSport looks at the potential replacements IF Hamilton does decide to quit F1. The Brit has a very bright future in F1 and would jump at the chance to join George Russell at Mercedes, as the two are mates. The Frenchman was a Mercedes junior driver, like Russell, but still has close links with Wolff. Long shot, but no driver knows Mercedes better than the Finn, who has now joined Alfa Romeo.
