Lewis Hamilton ‘will switch to Ferrari’ forcing Sebastian Vettel to join McLaren

Mercedes may well decide to keep the pair together beyond this season, but former F1 driver Marc Surer reckons he may be replaced by George Russell eventually.

“I would definitely put a young driver in the car and George Russell is imposing himself here,” Surer said.

“Bottas is a top number two for me, but I don’t see him as the future world champion.

“After all, if you are developing a young driver, you have the prospect of finding a driver who can one day take the place of Hamilton.”
