George Russell has proven time after time how talented he is. We saw during the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix just how outstanding a driver he truly is, albeit in the fastest car on the grid. He currently has a contract to race for Williams F1 Team in 2021.

In filling in for Lewis Hamilton, reigning 7-time world champion, he competes against the highly-skilled Valtteri Bottas, who he managed to fend off for the duration of the race. His qualifying pace was simply shocking - after only 2 days of getting used to the W11, he qualified an astonishing P2, only 26 Thousandths off his teammate. From the off he led the race itself, only to be jeopardized by Mercedes' disastrous pitstops and a puncture late on in the race. He recovered well after dropping rapidly down the order twice, with some impressive overtakes including one on Bottas himself. 

We ask that you sign this petition to get George a Mercedes seat for the 2021 season. Before the Sakhir GP, it looked unlikely that we would see any more driver changes aside from the currently empty seats being filled, but with your support Mercedes will be further inclined to re-evaluate their 2021 driver line-up. Please sign and share this petition to help George Russell, one of the most underrated talents of this generation of F1 drivers, achieve his full potential!
