The F1 pilot market could be overwhelmed if this is true

At the Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix weekend, it was announced that Lewis Hamilton had signed to Mercedes for another two years, but it will only be in the coming weeks and months that it will be decided who will be the teammate of the seven-time world champion. Toto Wolff has already admitted that there are two chances for the meeting: either Valtteri Bottas will hold it, or the time of George Russell, who has been waiting for years to move forward, is coming.

Lawrence Barretto, a specialist on the official site of Formula 1, believes informedthat it cannot even be ruled out that Valtteri Bottas will have no place at all if he chooses Mercedes Russell. His former team, Williams, can vote for two previously displaced drivers, namely Nico Hülkenberg and Danyiil Kvjat.

It is known that Williams was considering contracting Dan Ticktum and Zhou Kuan-jü, but both were rejected. Although Ticktum has been strengthening the Army Driver’s pilot training program for the second year in a row, it is unlikely to make its debut in Formula One next year. And the Chinese leading in Formula 2 has dropped out of the pixel because he is currently an academic at Alpine.

One of the most intriguing questions of the period ahead may be whether Danyiil Kvjat (b) or Nico Hülkenberg (j) will return to Formula One? Or maybe both of them?

This is borne out by the fact that Bottas has been mentioned at Alfa Romeo these days, but this is conditional on his compatriot Kimi Räikkönen hanging his helmet at an angle at the end of the year – the 2007 World Champion Red Bull Ring has not yet been able to outline what plans for next year. Antonio Giovinazzi’s position is already more secure than the Hinwilies thanks to his Ferrari attachment.

However, Alfa Romeo may still have the latest young hopes, as the name of Ferrari test driver Callum Ilott has been raised – in addition to Mick Schumacher’s early transfer – but even Robert Svarcman could run in if he had a good year this year. he closes in Formula 2 and his patron Ferrari embraces him in the king category as well.

At Red Bull and AlphaTaur, the threads are not yet fully sewn. Pierre Gasly may be attractive to Williams, but the reciprocity of the relationship may be overridden by the fact that the Grove car is currently much weaker than that of Red Bull’s sister team.

Gasly’s situation is also complicated because the fact that Sergio Pérez is starting to find himself reduces the chances of the Frenchman getting another chance from the Milton Keynes Guard. On the other hand, it’s almost enveloping that despite its initial stumbles, Cunoda Juki will stay with AlphaTaur next year, unless his performance deteriorates dramatically in the second half of the season.

If Cunoda is not kept, Red Bull can choose in-house from his juniors – Jüri Vips, Liam Lawson, Jehan Daruvala.
