Who will replace HAM for the next or possibly, next 2 races?

COVID-19 strikes F1 in the biggest way!!

7ewis Hamilton, 7 times WDC has been struck by the malady. I'm certain we all wish him well.

This is an unexpected chance to see someone else in the W11...something everyone has been clamoring for AND we get to have BOT as a reference.

Who could or SHOULD replace HAM this week and possibly next?

The Hulk - F1 driver, at large)
Stoffel Vandorne - Reserve Driver, Mercedes
Gutierez (sp?) - Simulator Driver, Mercedes
Ant Davis - Simulator Driver, Mercedes
Perez - Why not? He's out of contract and de facto Mercedes driver by engine?
Verstappen - Why not? They asked if he wanted to drive a Mercedes
Rosberg - Mercedes and Toto could lock in title of Global Troll Meisters, forever.
Paul DiResta - Let his bitterness resolve itself on the track
Someone else - name them!!

I'd love to see Perez in that car, but it won't happen.

I don't think the Hulk will be called due to his relative closeness with RBR.

In the end it doesn't matter anyway, as we all know you can just pull someone off of the street and they will win the W11.

Edit: I voted with my heart and not my head.

Think about how many people are going to lose points in the F1 fantasy leagues. That's a bigger problem.

Mate . What ?
Horner and Marko would poop fire !

Of course MAX would win the race in the Merc . 100 % sure !
Downside is : Afterwards the RB16 would feel really slow ...

My vote goes to Stoffel . Currently Stoffel has 50%

Would love to see Russell in there, but it's gonna be SVD, he is the reserve driver for exactly this situation. Drivers currently racing in other teams are not a real option obviously.

answers should be rational?

Vandoorne's job was for such events like this.. but since there is no pressure for championships actually we can fly a bit.. it can be Hakkinen..
Raikkonen could be interesting.. Hulk, Perez these guys deserves not temp seats..

or..

How about Pascal Wehrlein? Remember him? He was supposed to be the next big name out of Germany. Complete bust in F1...

Love the Hulk.
