For his part, Bottas does not hesitate for a second, and is already talking about the possibility of continuing with Mercedes. “Is my objetive. I want to keep my seat on the team. I think that at Mercedes we are a strong team right now. I always try to be positive and what I want is to continue with Mercedes. I think it is the best place to win and place for the title ”, he highlighted.
On the other hand, he also spoke of the possibility of being able to change teams in the category, something that had been rumored a few weeks ago. Some media assume that Bottas will replace Kimi Raikkonen in the Alfa Romeo team, although Bottas does not speak of any equipment in particular. “If that happens (leaving Mercedes), it would be a new chapter in my career. Most likely, he was not in the fight for the title. It would be a new project for me, which would also be very interesting, “he added.
