It's not 100% sure . But probably HAM will be replaced by the Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne
Of course as always , Toto has the last word in the whole situation ..

Note : I'm sorry my friend , to hear the bad news regarding HAM !
HAM tested "twice" COVID positive . Damn virus !!!
From what I have read, Stoffel had been schedule to be in Bahrain this weekend anyway after he wrapped up his Formula E testing in Spain.

Something to remember is that Stoffel and Esteban Gutierreze are the official reserve drivers for Racing Point. Despite that, Hulk was chosen to replace Perez and Stroll when they were ruled out of racing earlier this season. I know that in Silverstone Stoffel was unavailable due to other commitments but I dont recall that being the case at the Nurburgring when Hulk subbed in for Stroll. Point being, contracts in F1 dont seem to be more of a guideline

Well mate .According Sporza , Stoffels papers look right => https://sporza.be/nl/2020/12/01/is-v...1606821141608/

But , as I said above : Toto has the last word regarding the whole situation .

Yeah, I agree. Toto most likely has the last say.

Unconfirmed rumor on Reddit is that Mercedes want Russel with Stoffel being their plan B.

Vandoorne had his go in F1 and came up short....so not much benefit to put him in the seat
Russell at least looks like he *might* be a bit special.

Now now, theories are best left to oneself lest they be considered conspiracies by those who find themselves opposed to said speculations.

That is, unless one wants credit for said theories, which I do not. I'm sure you can guess what they are.

All that said, Russell better not out drive Lando! :LOL:

OH COMMON. Do share. It's hard for anything to be a conspiracy after putting up with the two biggest conspiracy theorists in the F1 threads.

Iím sure many share my sentiments, even the inverse of the two you mentioned who hang on Hamís nuts. Yes, I see many as the opposite side to the same coin.

Letís say this, one most will agree on, Russell will do quite well given a proper chassis. The fw43 is garbage and even Lando predicted Russell will go 1&1. I think it was said in jest but letís just say he shouldnít be back of midfield or back of pack. With a week in between races...

You think he will get the seat currently being kept warm by Bottas?
If so...can't see it.

Not so much about driver placement as I haven't given that much thought, to be fair, more about current state of drivers, placement, chassis etc.

I will be more than happy to begin speculating about driver placement next year though

Ha!!

I'm picking up what you are laying down. As far a Lando goes, it will be McLaren-Mercedes next year. The order of the universe will be restored and I will be cheering for Lando and HAM to mix it up!!

I don't remember off the top of my head. Is it the 2021 regs that say the works teams have to share their fuel mixtures as well? If so, that'll really make it interesting!
