Sky Sports F1HD commentator Martin Brundle says it is highly unlikely that the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team will replace Valtteri Bottas with George Russell in 2021.

It has been suggested that in Abu Dhabi that Mercedes had approached Williams about releasing Russell who replaced Lewis Hamilton in Bahrain last weekend.

Speaking during Saturday’s qualifying coverage in Abu Dhabi Brundle said that with contracts in place for 2021 it is not going to happen but who knows what might happen in 2022.
