Toto Wolff has repeatedly said that the choice for the second driver of the Mercedes would be made in the summer. But the summer is ending, and there is no mention of the song of the Righeira, but of reality. Time goes by and at Mercedes you have to choose. Maybe they have already done so but without formalizing anything so as not to put pressure on Valtteri Bottas, that you are playing the spot with George Russell. The announcement will certainly come in these weeks, and Formula 1 certainly did not miss the opportunity to ’embroider on’ by putting the Briton and the Finn. side by side for the press conference of the Belgian Grand Prix, in Spa.
It will be Bottas and Russell to open the dances on Thursday morning, while Lewis Hamilton he will speak at around 1.30 pm together with Sergio Perez. At about 3.10 pm, however, the supercouple composed of Charles Leclerc And Max Verstappen. The other driver of the Ferrari, Carlos Sainz: at his side, Daniel Ricciardo.
