Russell happy to be out of contract for 2022

George Russell says he will be a free agent next year, in yet another sign that he may be lining up to become Lewis Hamilton’s next teammate. The team trusts me and I trust the team, it’s that simple,” the impressive 21-year-old said. Some were surprised by the early announcement, but another driver pushing for clarity about his future is Valtteri Bottas – who has raced under the cloud of his single-year Mercedes contracts since 2017. But he said the August break is the “natural period” for contract talks. There are major changes next year and if the team has the ability to choose its drivers, so much the better,” said Bottas.
