British Formula 1 driver George Russell will race for Mercedes next year, the team announced on Tuesday.

"I’m excited and humbled to be joining Mercedes next year, which is a huge career step, but it also means I’ll be saying goodbye to my teammates and friends at Williams," Russell said.

Russell, who debuted in Formula 1 with Williams in 2019, will be racing alongside Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes in the 2022 season, replacing Valtteri Bottas who will be leaving the team to join Alfa Romeo at the end of this season.
