Valtteri Bottas says he hasn’t started negotiations about his future post-2020, but at this moment he would choose to stay with Mercedes.

Valtteri reveals he is not going to rush any discussions about his future and will instead wait to see what opportunities might come his way.

“I haven’t really thought about it, and we’re not going to rush to sort anything before next season even starts,” said Bottas.

“I’ll still wait to see what’s out there, with this team first, so there’s really no stress to rush things. I’ll definitely have talks about it soon.”

However at the moment he sees himself staying with Mercedes.

“Of course all of us drivers are seeing what opportunities are out there, but if I would have to decide right now what would be my future in Formula 1, that would be a no-brainer: I would stay with this team.

“I believe in the job we’re doing altogether and, with them, I’m becoming a better driver all the time.

“We’ll see how the next season starts, what opportunities will be available. There are many elements that have to come together.

“And at the same time, I want to keep my mind open regarding the future,” concluded the Finn.
