Toto Wolff has been told to take a chance on an upcoming teenage sensation when picking Lewis Hamilton’s replacement at Mercedes. Commenting on the potential of Antonelli being promoted by Mercedes, Palmer said: ‘You’ve got to go bold. If Antonelli wins F2 and looks an absolute superstar, you’re Mercedes, go bold! Suggestions that Antonelli could be the perfect successor to Hamilton aren’t new for Wolff though. He’s won everything he needed to win in his rookie season, but I think he is going to be in Formula 1. ‘He’s going to be a very, very successful driver in Formula 1. That’s why I want to want to wait out the first few [F2] races that are actually going to go with Formula 1.
