Valtteri Bottas has an “offer” to switch from Williams to the Renault works team for 2017.
That is the claim of Oskari Saari, the F1 commentator for Finnish television MTV.
Williams is obviously toying with the notion of replacing both Bottas and Felipe Massa for 2017, amid speculated links with Jenson Button, Lance Stroll, Daniil Kvyat, Sergio Perez, Felipe Nasr and others.
According to Saari, 26-year-old Bottas could either stay with the Grove team or decide to move to Renault.
“It is impossible to get a comment from those involved, especially the drivers at this time of the year,” he told the Danish newspaper BT.
“Valtteri is saying nothing, but let me put it like this: I know for sure that he has offers from both Williams and Renault at the moment,” Saari added.
