Formulahistory should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The big questionmark will be at Alfa Romeo. I don't see Ilott in and it could be Alfa Romeo pulls out of F1 and Sauber will become the Alpine Junior team.

Sauber are in discussions about continuing with Alfa, so we’ll see. If Alfa decide not to continue, it wouldn’t be the first time the Sauber name is back after a manufacturer that took over the team pulled out.

Alfa are a sponsor/partner with a deal that supplies engines and puts an FDA driver in one of the seats. The team is owned by the TetraPak lot.
If the Alfa deal ends, Sauber will need to cosy up to another big partner for engines, tech. Renault/Alpine has been rumoured which could see either Zhou ot Piastri partner and experienced driver.

I think neither of the 2 current merc drivers will be in those cars in 2022 and DEFINITELY not by 2023. Bottas will be shuffled out or retire at end of this season, and this year or next year will be lulu's last.

No prizes for guessing Russell gets Bottas seat in 2022, and the 2nd to DannyR (if they want one experienced driver) or Lando (2 young fast talents) when Lulu looks for new challenge at end of this or next season.

Im a huge Dan Fan but Norris and Russell pushing each other in the best cars would be a great competition. And Merc like to lock in drivers for long term rather than 1 or 2 years, by taking those 2 "young guns" they could have the same line up for many years.

I don’t think Mercedes would be looking at a driver who gets lapped by his teammate or one in the last few years of his F1 career.

Ocon is a smokey too. He's still in the Merc family.

I believe he rescinded his Merc association when he joined Renault (now Alpine) in 2020. He is however still managed by Toto Wolff as he has been for some years now.
Toto recently as good as said Ocon and Mercedes will no longer happen. His exact words were that his Alpine ties "complicated his prospects of becoming a Mercedes driver" in the near future.

Exactly that, he was released from his MB ties to pursue other opportunities as he saw Georgie was the chosen one now and he didn't push Bottas out after negotiating hard for the seat.

Had to be hard for his manager to argue with the team boss there.

Webber to Renault. Ocon to Mercedes.
