Williams boss hopes Russell secures Mercedes seat

Even George Russell’s current boss would like to see the increasingly impressive 23-year-old to take the big step into a full-time Mercedes seat for 2022. On the other hand, Jost Capito also admits he would “very much like to keep him” at Williams for another year. “But if he gets an offer to go to Mercedes, he will get our full support,” said the Williams chief. “I think every driver who does not have a place for next year or an option for next year is talking to us at the moment,” Capito admitted. As for Russell, Capito says the British driver is simply ready to take the next step in his career. “I would like George to get the place because he is now in a position in his career where he can cope with driving in a top team and fighting for the title,” he said.
