In Formula 1 Silly Season, Valtteri Bottas is Leaving Mercedes-AMG for Alfa Romeo 🏎 🇫🇮

OP is really only making this post because she doesn't care about George Russell's Mercedes move enough to put it in her Monza race post for this weekend, sorry George stans.

In the season's worst kept secret, Mercedes-AMG Petronas's Valtteri Bottas tenure's with the team is coming to an end. The announcement is that Bottas's contract with Alfa Romeo is for 2022 and beyond, so let's hope it's multiple years as opposed to Merc who just gave him one year contracts.

It pretty much is confirmed that George Russell who is currently driving for Williams will be replacing him, the official announcement is expected for tomorrow or at least at Monza this weekend. Sir Lewis Hamilton has extended his 1 (+1) contract, so he's not leaving in 2022.

Bottas joined the team in 2017 after Nico Rosberg's retirement.

Here's some of Valterri's stats at the Silver Arrows:
9 wins
54 podiums
671 laps led
1224 points
17 pole positions

He was runner up in the WDC in 2019 and 2020.

Sir Lewis had some nice and sweet departing words for Valtteri

Hey, F1 old heads, if you was around during the Schumacher-Barrichello years of dominance, is Bottas on par with Barrichello or at least is their treatment in the sport comparable?
