I share Skam's scepticism, but I do hope that this rumour is true.
Mercedes are in an awkward position with Russell, he needs to find a top car, and I am sure that the opposition must have him on their radar.

Max is also available at the end of the year, but I think he will stay at RBR, could Russell be drafted as a number 2?

Russell is young hungry and talented, would Max have Russell on board and would Russell sign as a #2?

I also thought Max was contracted to RBR until end 2023, having signed an extension I think last year.

As for Bottas swapping with Russell and returning Williams I had the same thought last week on another forum. Be a logical swap, but.....

The only reason why Russell needs a top car is to wallpaper all his deficiencies.

Has not yet scored a point at Williams despite an out of shape Kubica being able to. Had he not scored points in the best car in the field on that one occasion, he'd have been beaten by Latifi in the standings last year. Absolutely howled by an easy move on Bottas when points were on the line at Imola.

Overrated and would be heavily exposed as Hamilton's teammate. Many ahead of him.

I cant say i disagree. If i was Merc, I would be trying to make a deal with Mclaren to take Lando but with the new formula next year, i feel like everyone stays where they are.

Unless Bottas does something that makes staying at Merc impossible that is.

I saw this "news" item the other day. It's clearly a slow news day when this type of rumor gets print. Lets wait for more credible sources.

williams works out how to get maximum tv coverage!

Pastor Maldinardo and Mazzaspin in each car
Guaranteed lots of TV as they spin, crash get lapped and baulk other drivers every weekend!
Sponsiors love it.. lots of exposure.
Major motor insurance company and parts companies as sponsors

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
A question-is this thread for reporting rumours seen elsewhere or for starting our own?My own feeling is that next year we will be seeing fewer former world champions on the grid as their younger team-mates are putting them in the shade.Another interesting consideration will be whether the cost cap will mean there will be less need for seat buyers of questionable talent.

Seat buyers have now actually started buying entire teams, hence Team Stroll, Team Mazepin, and who knows what is next for Williams.

He is already 58 points behind World Champion Max Verstappen.

A definite 'pinch of salt' article, I think.....
