While British driver Russell has talent to spare, his future with the Williams team has not been confirmed yet. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff was asked for his opinion on a possible exit of the young driver. If Russell is made to leave Williams, he argues, this will not be a skill-based but “a political and commercial decision.”
Wolff: "It all depends on whether Williams' owners decide which way they want to go. We have to respect Williams' independence and its decision-making process.” Nevertheless, Wolff does not worry about Russell’s future with Williams, saying: "I believe he is in a good position."
Perez to Williams?
Rumours have been spreading regarding a possible cooperation between Williams and Sergio Perez next season. Perez is still looking for a seat after he was replaced by Sebastian Vettel to drive for Racing Point/Aston Martin.
