“I see no reasons why Russell could not take the place of the back-racer in our team, – said the Deputy head of the Force India Robert Fearnley in an interview with AUTOSPORT. – The main thing that he stayed with us for a long time. This will benefit both Mercedes and Force India. We were very lucky with Esteban Windows, and now, perhaps, with George”.
It is expected that the agreement with Russell will be concluded before the expiry of 2017.
