    Probably wait until half the season is gone and he's being resoundly beat by his team mate before going "daddy, make my brum brum go faster"

    [probably also explains why they didn't opt for hulk]

    They know Hulk is good, they probably know how good he is compared to Battas from all the data. They also know he can drop in and perform.

    If Russel is to be a future Merc driver this is the perfect trial by fire for him with no risk to Merc since they and Hamton have won the championship. Can Bottas secure second in the drivers since ultimately there should be no excuse for finishing first or will Russel prove to be as good as he looks in that Williams?

    Vandoorne was always going to get the second seat if if Russel wasnt available. I reckon this weekend determines Bottas's future if Hamilton signs a new deal

    It's was 'will hulk actually fit in the car?' more than 'how good will hulk be?'

    Russel is being wedged in there good and proper being markedly taller than hamilton, hulk is, iirc taller again.

    Hulkenberg and Russell are the same height (both 6 foot 1 i thought) so it probably didnt come i to the decision.

    I just recall Hulk being passed over for a drive [Mclaren iirc] bc he didn't fit in the car.

    Mansell's comback was supposedly torpedoed due to that too back in the day.
    I think Hulkenbergs weight was more of a problem for some teams than his height.

    After binning it behind the safety car, then binning it on his way to the grid in the next race, I really hope the other George takes the wheel this time out.

    54.7 seconds with the soft tyres, that's a mental F1 lap time.

    It’s basically a square track, I am surprised it’s even classed as a formula one track.

    Indy could use something similar and do and get laughed at

    Bottas been made to look more average but is a team player and won’t rock the boat is why he is employed
