2021 Monaco Grand Prix, Wednesday - Steve Etherington

F1 | Bottas instead of Russell in Williams? “I will evaluate other options”

If there is a certainty in this 2021 it is that Russell is destined to take a day, it is still not known when, the place in Mercedes. The young Brit had already tried the Mercedes on the occasion of the Shakir 2020 GP, but unfortunately only on that occasion he had been able to savor all the power of the black arrows. Bottas, who presumably will see himself cut off from the stable where he never managed to win a world title, could join Williams by replacing the very young boy who will presumably take his place. In fact, Valtteri himself confirmed that he wanted to remain in the F1 circus for many years.

“We are already in July and there are only two races left before the summer break. So we will discuss it soon, maybe not tomorrow, but soon. Obviously it is important for me to understand the intentions of the team, we know that Lewis is confirmed but for me it is important that we discuss as soon as possible to understand the situation ”.

I feel I can go on for many more years, I like racing, I love racing, I love F1, so I’m not interested in looking for alternatives in other motorsport series. If I can’t continue with Mercedes, I will obviously consider other options, but at the moment I’m not thinking about it yet. I also have a good management team, and I haven’t received any information about 2022 yet, I don’t know if they have explored alternative possibilities. For my part, I am focused on working on the track, to try to give my best for myself and for the team ”.
