Williams retains Russell and Latifi for 2021 season

Williams has formally confirmed that George Russell and Nicholas Latifi will continue to race for the team in Formula 1 next year. Long-term Mercedes protégé Russell stepped up to a Williams Formula 1 seat on a multi-year deal at the start of 2019, following on from back-to-back titles in GP3 and Formula 2. Russell’s deal covers 2019 through 2021 but it is understood Mercedes had the option to buy him out of the contract if it wanted to promote him to its own Formula 1 team. Valtteri Bottas, leader of this season’s championship after the opening two events, is expected to stay at Mercedes, with Lewis Hamilton also poised to remain at the team.
