    Hulk is currently without a seat, but he could be expected to take Grosjean's or maybe even Pérez's.
    Naoki Yamamoto is being eyed for the second Toro Rosso seat.
    Apparently Toto has decided that he wants to have George Russell in a Merc, but not right now, he is to spend another year cutting his teeth in Williams, Esteban has been let go. French driver in the French national(ized) team.

    Hulk and Mag on the same team isn’t really a good idea

    It's still too early to tell, as there could still be a way for Honda to bring Vettel back to RB. I mean, he's hugely popular in Japan, right? Plus, there is reportedly a clause in Ricciardo's contract that lets him negotiate with Ferrari should one of their seats open up.

    Those all sound like fun changes. Vettel back at RB where he had the most fun. Ric out of the nightmare known as Renault and into a true chance to fight for wins and back in the spotlight. I would welcome all of that. I only hope Ferrari doesn’t destroy the psyche of LeClerc along the way. Those guys are high pressure and low on fun.

    Bottas renewed for one year in Mercedes.
    Ocon is released from Mercedes as well, and being free from manifacturer ties he is bound to join Ricciardo at Renault.
    Russell is now the candidate to replace Bottas in 2021, after a, hopefully better, second year at Williams.

    Holy cow! I googled and found no such news. Where do you get your F1 news Blerpa?

    I've only seen articles saying Hamilton probably prefers Bottas, the pair are working together pretty well for Mercedes. It'd be kinda foolish to mess with that... even if Ocon were the next Max, probably not a good idea to start such internal rivalry..., but we all know that's not really the case.

    Anyway, good for Bottas. Hate to see him lose his seat for a pretty decent performance so far.

    On the flip side, it really looks like Mercedes is not caring too much about the future. I think it's very possible for Mercedes to retire from the sports along with Hamilton. I think the only thing missing after all these years is that they couldn't win one with a German champion. Maybe they'll try to sign Vettel someday...

    Italian motorsport.com breaking news article.
    Let's see if it goes official during the weekend.
    Mercedes future is set: Russell is coming and they have few very young drivers in lower series.

    Ocon free from Mercedes and officially joining Renault for 2020 and 2021 alongside Daniel Ricciardo.
    Hulkenberg is the first candidate for an Haas seat replacing Grosjean.

    What does that leave Mercedes with after 2020?
    Will Hamilton retire after another championship and Mercedes pull out?

    It's not like their HR is short on CVs.
