Mercedes must sign Russell for 2022 says Ralf

Ralf Schumacher has rejected suggestions Mercedes may actually stick with Valtteri Bottas for next year. The former Formula 1 driver thinks it is obvious that the German outfit will actually move the young and highly-rated George Russell from Williams for 2022 and beyond. “I am firmly assuming that Russell will be in the Mercedes next year,” Schumacher told Sport1. “Lewis is 36, so in another two or three years, the cheese will already have been eaten,” the former Williams driver added. However, Bottas said last weekend that Hamilton has told him “directly” that he would prefer if the 31-year-old Finn remains on the team next year.
