    To make it fair, move Perez to Mercedes, and Hamilton to RedBull. Enjoy a four-way battle.

    The Stories so far.

    1. Hamilton negotiation are targeting earlier talks (but have not started)
    2. Mercedes 2nd seat
    3. Williams - they evidently were interested in Perez last year and will Russel renew?
    4. Alfa Romeo - rumors they are out which could mean 2 new drivers next year

    I want to see Mick get away from that slug Haas and move to Alfa Romeo… where he should have been in the first place.

    Alpine has evidently said they are happy with Ocon and would like for him resign for 2022.

    Gasly probably feeling little uncomfortable after reaching out to Alpine earlier this spring for a possible move. Especially as he continue to make mistake and just struggle in 2021.

    Alpine is supposedly negotiating with Ocon for contract extension.

    https://www.racefans.net/2021/05/21/...new-2022-deal/


    1. I assume Mercedes has told him he won't be considered for their seat.

    2. Watch if Williams is trying to negotiating with Russel, that may be the indicator if Bottas is staying with Mercedes

    3. Gasly has to be wondering what his future is after making a play for Alpine and being rejected. It seems he has no future with RBR beside staying with Alpha Tauri.

    Helmut Marko has revealed that RB won't decide on whether they resign Perez until the summer break.

    "Let's start with the positive, that's the race performance," Marko said.

    "It's very good, sometimes at Max's level. He proved that in Monte Carlo when we went for the overcut. That was three or four laps where he drove the fastest laps overall, with already very used tyres. So the race pace is there.

    "The area where we're still lacking is in qualifying. We need to see an improvement there."

    Russel on his future. My quick take - if Mercedes doesn't want to promote him to their car, he will find somewhere else that he can compete. But he won't be at Williams.

    If they don't believe I deserve it, then they will find me a seat somewhere where I can continue to develop. But I feel like I'm ready to fight for world championships and fight for victories. I feel ready right now to be able to do that, let alone with another year under my belt by the end of this season.

    “So, wherever I find myself next year, I want to be in a car that will give me the chance to win races. Because I didn't fight my whole career to get to F1 to be fighting for 15th and 16th.
