    2021 should be Russels last WIlliams year. Give that man a WC winning car. Im not even a Merc fan but George is so calm and understandable. First time in the car, not his seat, not his wheel, doesnt know the car, doesnt know the buttons, still on pair with Bottas, if not even a bit better. You cant blame Bottas, Russel is simply a raw talent.

    everyone knows why russell didn't win. mercedes hindered him in every way, he couldn't win with hamilton out and ahead of bottas. this would have testified that everyone can drive a mercedes and hamilton is not that strong.
