Bottas set to explore non-Mercedes options

Valtteri Bottas says he will explore “other options” if Mercedes decides to oust him for 2022 and beyond. “When we signed the (Hamilton) contract, we asked Valtteri what he thought about us announcing it now,” team boss Toto Wolff said in Austria. Wolff said the decision between Bottas or George Russell will only be made “in the next few weeks or maybe months”. However, he said the time for negotiations is coming “soon”. “I don’t know what day or what week, but yes we will have to look at all the options and the situation as a whole,” said Bottas. It is a big decision for Wolff, because Bottas is Hamilton’s preferred partner.
