George Russell signs for Mercedes and joins Lewis Hamilton for the season 2022. Sources says it is a long term contract which is what Russel was looking for after three years with Williams F1. Considering Russel being a Mercedes junior driver since 2017 and his brilliant performance in the silver arrow in the Bahrain Grand Prix in 2020 when he replaced Lewis Hamilton due to Covid-19, this was expected. 

The 23 year old brit will replace Valtteri Bottas who is moving to Alfa Romeo after five seasons with Mercedes.
