According to Finnish newspaper Tarun Sanomat, Valtteri Bottas will renew his contract with Mercedes this week for an additional season.
A few days ago, the German Auto Bild reported that Valtteri Bottas was due to renew his contract with Mercedes for another year, while the spare silver arrow driver Esteban Ocon is moving to Renault.
Finnish newspaper Tarun Sanomat, however, states that Bottas will also formally renew his contract with Mercedes this week, and Finec will become a teammate of Lewis Hamilton at least next year.
Esteban Ocon is expected to strengthen the ranks of the French Renault in a year, joining Daniel Ricciard.
Nico Hulkenberg would be left without Renault headquarters, but he is expected to make the switch to Haas in the meantime, where he is likely to replace the unconvinced Romain Grosjean.
