On Tuesday, the Mercedes team actually officially confirmed Stoffel Vandoorne and Nyck de Vries as substitute drivers . But if one of the two regular cockpits should unexpectedly become free in the 2021 Formula 1 season, neither of them will probably get a chance - but Nico Hülkenberg!

"We all know what he can do," says Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff in an interview with 'Sky' about the 33-year-old German. Hülkenberg is "one of the top drivers who somehow didn't get this last chance to drive with a top team", although in his opinion he "could certainly convince" in the best Formula 1 cars.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff has confirmed Valtteri Bottas will remain at the team in 2021 and explained his radio message to the Finnish driver during qualifying is part of a new style of communication between the two. The Finnish driver has come under pressure in the past week after he was outperformed by Hamilton's replacement at the Sakhir Grand Prix, George Russell. The Mercedes team boss explained that talks this week with his driver had led to a Bottas requesting more demonstrations of support from Wolff in the future.

Wolff has presided over Mercedes ’ unprecedented run of six straight drivers ’ and constructors’ championships, but revealed here that he is considering bowing out at the end of the current campaign.
