Russell thinks Perez camp fuelling Williams rumours

George Russell thinks rumours about his potential axing by Williams are being fuelled by the Sergio Perez camp. Russell is backed by the team’s engine supplier Mercedes, whose boss Toto Wolff advised Williams to keep the 22-year-old on board. “The new owners want to bring the team forward,” Wolff said in Portugal. However, he insisted that if Williams does dump Russell, Mercedes will not punish the Oxfordshire based team. “We wouldn’t be happy, but it wouldn’t damage our relationship with Williams. “We have a contract with Williams until 2025, and Mercedes is known for respecting contracts. For his part, Russell suspects the Perez rumours are highly political, and perhaps being fuelled “by the Perez camp” to pressure other teams.
