Similar to Albon’s situation, Nyck de Vries’ possible move to Formula 1 with Alfa Romeo might be complicated by his links with Mercedes.

Why it matters: De Vries is Formula E’s World Champion with Mercedes, meaning a move to Formula 1 with a non-Mercedes-powered team could be complicated by his links.

What they had to say: “De Vries looks complicated for me because he is strongly linked to Mercedes. It’s much easier for us to deal with someone who is under contract with Ferrari than with someone who is under contract with Mercedes,” Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur said.
