Russell, Bottas say 2021 contracts unchanged

George Russell and Valtteri Bottas have bucked the speculation by suggesting their respective contracts for 2021 will proceed as planned. After impressing the F1 world with his performance in Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes, Russell suggested he had given Toto Wolff some thinking to do over the winter. “Emotions were running high obviously but ultimately I have a contract and I will be a Williams driver in 2021,” Russell insisted. Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko ruled out snapping up Russell to be Max Verstappen’s teammate next year on the basis that he has a ten-year deal in place with Mercedes and Wolff. “I signed a contract with Mercedes in 2016 and they are my bosses,” Russell confirmed.
