Video: Why Mercedes shouldn't wait until 2022 to sign Russell

George Russell produced a stellar performance across the Sakhir Grand Prix weekend that has Formula 1's managing director motorsports Ross Brawn hailing him as being "future F1 champion material".

Contracts in place for next season for Valtteri Bottas with Mercedes and Russell at Williams naturally dictate matters, but Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff has been given "a headache", according to the 22-year-old Briton.

So here is why we at GPFans believe Wolff should move now to get Russell in next year's W12 rather than wait until 2022 after what will have been a three-year stint waiting in the wings for his big opportunity.

They definitely need to bin Bottas but he's a yes man told to not overtake Hamilton I think it would be hard for Russell to do that as he is a true racer and would probably wipe Hamiltons ***** on his first race and sulky ham would throw his dummy out of the car another thing is Hamilton can't drive without Bonno on the other end of the radio Russell only asked one question where is the overtake button hope Hamilton doesn't sign he's doing a brilliant driver out of a drive Russell and Perez for 2021
