George Russell will join Mercedes in 2022, while Valtteri Bottas will move to Alfa Romeo. Toto Wolff explains what he expects to see from both drivers.

In an interview with Speedweek.com Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff was asked what his expectations are from George Russell in 2022.

“That he fits in well with the Mercedes system,” the Austrian said.

“That means learning. It doesn’t matter whether he is slower or faster than Lewis or tied. He has to be a team player. With us, the team is the star, not a single member.

And with Valtteri Bottas moving to Alfa Romeo, Wolff was asked what he expects to see from the Finn next year.

“That he takes the lead there. He can bring the team forward. He’s certainly not a phenomenon like Lewis or Max, which is very rare.

“But most recently in Turkey, for example, he drove better than the two of them,” Mercedes’ team boss concluded.
