Hamilton’s staying, but who’ll be his team-mate?

Date published: May 27 2020

The podcast has covered silly season matters at Ferrari and Renault; next up, a look at where things stand at the team to beat: Mercedes.

The tenth episode of Torquing Point gets underway with a brief look at why Lewis Hamilton isn’t going anywhere, before moving on to the more questionable matter of who will partner him.

With Valtteri Bottas out of contract at the end of this season, rumours of him leaving are beginning to pile up once again.

Finley and Michelle discuss whether he’s done enough to extend his stay with the Silver Arrows and consider what his other options may be if not.

The pair then take a look at who could replace the Finn. Sebastian Vettel and George Russell are the two most popular options amongst the listeners, but which is more likely to happen? Would a Vettel-Hamilton partnership cause issues, and is it too soon for Russell to make the step-up?

Finley and Michelle also read out your comments and make their own predictions on whom they think will be driving alongside Hamilton in 2021 and beyond.
