RUMOUR: Valtteri Bottas to stay with Mercedes

Autosport.com reports that Valtteri Bottas and Mercedes have agreed on a new deal for 2021, but the contract itself is yet to be signed.

The reports says the new deal has been “agreed in principle”, while the final contract is still being put together. Autosport notes that the deal has been brokered “in the last few days”, after Bottas’ great performances and the Austrian and Styrian grands prix.

If the report is true, this would leave Mercedes to negotiate the deal with Lewis Hamilton in what he himself described as probably his last contract with Mercedes (and possibly Formula 1).
