Valtteri Bottas’ crash at Hungarian GP will not influence decision over his Mercedes future ‘at all’, insists boss Toto Wolff as he claims incident was ‘unfortunate’ despite George Russell vying to partner Lewis Hamilton

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff has thrown his backing behind Valtteri Bottas after his crash at the Hungarian Grand Prix, and insists the incident won’t play into the decision over his future. Russell himself enjoyed a great race and finished eighth – scoring his first points with Williams – and he will hope to usurp Bottas next year. Speaking after his crash, Bottas admitted this F1 season has ‘not gone my way’, after his third DNF so far, but is positive he is making progress and is positive he can make headway in the races to come. ‘At least in the last few races, it feels like it’s been slightly positive, getting some podiums and more points,’ Bottas said.
