Mercedes eyeing Vettel for 2018 F1?

Last January Mercedes have signed with Valtteri Bottas as the replacement for suddenly retired F1 world champion Nico Rosberg – departing Paddy Lowe reported to be heading to the Finn’s team as part of the deal.

But for 2018 Formula 1, Mercedes could be eying four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel – giving Bottas just a one-year deal with the Silver Arrows.

However the Champion’s chairman Niki Lauda is heading to Australia denying rumours Mercedes is lining up a tilt to sign Sebastian Vettel.

The German team does not deny that Nico Rosberg’s successor, Valtteri Bottas, was given a mere one-year deal so that a bigger name might be signed up for 2018 Formula 1.

But F1 legend Lauda denies the big plan is to lure German Vettel from Ferrari.

“That is not our plan — I must say that quite clearly,” the triple world champion and the Silver Arrows’ chairman told the Austrian broadcaster ORF.

However, he doesn’t deny that Mercedes is keeping its options open.

“We’re going to start with Bottas and (Lewis) Hamilton and see how it goes,” said Lauda.
