Williams Martini Racing driver Valtteri Bottas’ future has yet to be decided with the Finn revealing he doesn’t have a contract in place for next year.
In recent weeks, the Finn has been linked to a move from the Williams Team to Scuderia Ferrari. But according to speculation he has signed a pre-contract with Ferrari which initially was thought to be for next season but other reports claim it is actually for 2017.
The reason for the year-long delay is that Williams are believed to have an option on Bottas for next season. For now, though, his future has yet to be decided. When asked in his interview today if he had pre-agreement with Ferrari in place, Bottas told the media: “No.”
In fact; Bottas doesn’t have anything in place with any team for next season. Bottas stated the following in his interview with the media today on the situation:-
“I don’t have anything for next year,” said Bottas to Autosport. “My management is doing all that and maybe there’s some things they didn’t tell me so maybe you should ask them. At the moment I’m not thinking about any move, I’m just thinking about getting the best out of this season.
“That’s for my management to think about and I’m sure they have some kind of plan for this season for the years ahead.”
