More than two options to replace Russell says Capito

Alex Albon and Nyck de Vries are not the only drivers in the running to replace the Mercedes-bound George Russell at Williams in 2022. “We knew this was a possibility,” said team boss Jost Capito, on the day Mercedes finally announced that Russell is replacing Valtteri Bottas next year. Capito insists Williams is under “no time pressure” to make that decision, even though top contenders Albon and rookie de Vries have also been linked with Alfa Romeo. When asked to name whether Albon or Formula E champion de Vries is his preferred pick, Capito answered: “There are other candidates – not only two.”.
