Current Racing Point driver Sergio Perez is looking for a seat for 2021 after being released by the team to make way for Sebastian Vettel next year.

While Williams announced back in July that Russell and team-mate Nicholas Latifi would be retained for 2021, the team has since changed ownership, leading to fresh doubt emerging in the last week about Russell's future.

Acting team principal Simon Roberts refused to confirm on Friday that Russell and Latifi would be staying for 2021, but stressed he was eager to avoid fuelling any speculation.

 Nicholas Latifi: Having to overcome my natural instincts Formula 1 driver Nicholas Latifi explains how difficult it is to move a Williams racing car in the 2020 season and what goals he sets for himself The Williams FW43 is not one of the greatest Throws by the traditional British team. Formula 1 driver Nicholas Latifi experiences this anew with each of his assignments. And he keeps saying: Compared to the competition, the Williams is not only too slow, it also doesn't react particularly well to set-up changes.

Fed -Cup. Perez , who is making way at Racing Point (Aston Martin in 2021) for four-times world champion Sebastian Vettel, has strong financial backing as well as a good record Russell said there was always bound to be speculation with so many drivers available and fighting for a seat for 2021.

Speaking after Sunday's Portuguese Grand Prix, Russell said he thought the rumours about his future had been fuelled by Perez's management in a bid to try and help the Mexican's chances of landing a seat elsewhere for 2021.

"I think all of this speculation has probably been fed by the Perez camp, who are trying to apply pressure on other teams further down the grid, potentially [for] a Red Bull seat," Russell said.

"That's my view on it. I've got a contract, I've got nothing to worry about, and I'm just here focusing on my job."

Russell said on Thursday that he would look to speak to Williams' new management about the rumours this weekend. Dorilton Capital chairman Matthew Savage was on site from Friday onwards in Portimao.

The British driver confirmed he had discussed the speculation with Dorilton, and anticipated receiving further clarity about his future in the next seven days.

  Williams coy on outlook of 2021 line-up amid Perez links Acting Williams team principal Simon Roberts has remained tight-lipped on the look of the team’s driver line-up for 2021, refusing to confirm if either George Russell or Nicholas Latifi will stay. Williams announced both Russell and Latifi would be retained for next year back in July, two months before Dorilton Capital acquired control of the team. But with Racing Point’s Sergio Perez a free agent after being replaced by Sebastian Vettel for 2021, speculation has emerged that the Mexican may be talking to Williams over a drive for next season. Russell has brushed off any concerns regarding his future at the Grove-based outfit, insisting he has a contract in place.

"They've said they have no idea where these rumours have come from," Russell said.

"They never like to comment on contractual situations obviously following Simon's press conference on Friday, things again were taken probably slightly out of context, which is exactly what the team didn't want to do.

"Ultimately the team didn't want to comment on it because they felt like it isn't necessary, and it's just opening themselves up to further queries later down the line.

"I've got a contract, and I'll be on the grid next year, and I'm very confident of that. I think something pretty substantial would have to happen in the coming weeks for anything to change.

"There's obviously a lot of speculation. I think it's been fed from other people. Everything will be, like I said, everything will be fine.

"I'd say [it will be] 100% clarified from the team's perspective probably no later than the end of next week."

Russell is part of Mercedes' junior programme, but the German marque has already conceded it has no say in his future and that the decision is entirely up to Williams.

Mercedes F1 chief Toto Wolff said on Saturday that Russell would be handed a "sensational" testing programme in 2021 were he to be left without a seat.

But the 2018 F2 champion said there had been no discussions with Mercedes about a back-up option for next year if he is not racing.

"No, we've not talked about a fallback," Russell said.

"[Wolff] said, 'listen, I've got your back', and he said 'you'll be on the grid next year, and don't worry'."
