Daniel Ricciardo faces four F1 rivals to replace Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes

1 min read

Lando Norris

A driver partnership of Russell and Lando Norris could be the dream for Mercedes. It would also be another opportunity for Norris to put a dent in Ricciardo’s F1 career. 

Norris’ form with McLaren has largely pushed Ricciardo out of the door. The 22-year-old has also hinted that he has little sympathy for the Australian over his premature departure. 

By signing Norris, Mercedes would have two of the most highly-rated drivers in the sport. 

Esteban Ocon

Frenchman Esteban Ocon has quietly gone about his business with Alpine. He sits eighth in the world championship leaderboard following an impressive half-season. 

The 25-year-old would be an excellent back-up to Russell if Mercedes want to make the young Brit their star driver. Ocon has consistently performed well in Grands Prix and would ensure the SIlver Arrows pick up points while allowing Russell to thrive.
