Mercedes won’t use the Sakhir GP as a shootout between Bottas and Russell

Formula One champions Mercedes are not treating this weekend’s Sakhir Grand Prix as a shootout between team regular Valtteri Bottas and super-sub George Russell, team principal Toto Wolff said on Friday. Russell, a 22-year-old who is in only his second season in Formula One, has been called up to stand in for Lewis Hamilton after the seven-times world champion tested positive for COVID-19. The highly-rated Briton, who has impressed at engine customer Williams, is seen as a talent of the future.
