He also finished second twice in the world championship. His last win came at the Russian Grand Prix in September 2020.
Bottas will replace Finnish compatriot Kimi Raikkonen at Alfa Romeo, with the 2007 world champion retiring from the sport at the end of the campaign.
“The potential of the setup in Hinwil is clear and I am relishing the opportunity to help lead the team forward up the grid,” said Bottas.
“Especially with the new regulations in 2022 giving the team a chance to make a leap in performance.”
Russell, 23, has spent three seasons at Williams, and impressed in a one-off appearance for Mercedes at last year’s Sakhir Grand Prix as a stand-in for Hamilton after he tested positive for Covid-19.
