UPDATE RUSSELL HAS REACHED OUT TO OTHER TEAMS

Sources indicate to RACER website that Russell has reached out to other teams in recent weeks, with the Mercedes-backed youngster facing the prospect of trying to find a new drive at the last minute.

At this stage it is not clear how open Perez is to joining the team that sits bottom of the constructors’ championship, especially as Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko has hinted his team could turn to an experienced driver like Perez or Nico Hulkenberg to partner Max Verstappen if it opts to replace Alex Albon.

Although Williams confirmed both Russell and Nicholas Latifi for 2021 earlier this year after Valtteri Bottas signed a contract extension at Mercedes, it is believed Russell is most at risk due to the financial backing that comes with Latifi. While the Canadian has had a solid rookie year so far, he has yet to outqualify his teammate in a qualifying session.

For Dorilton Capital – the owner of Williams – it is interesting to attract Sergio Perez, who is taking a lot of money with him. Russell does not. Since that team is in the process of reconstruction, all additional sources of income are interesting and that makes Nicholas Latifi’s position a certainty.
