Mercedes has uncovered the pandora’s box, or, better said, Rosberg with your up early has done. A whole December and probably January moviditos is what awaits us with the transfer market in full swing. It has been talked about lately, Pastor Maldonado, who is negotiating to be on the grid for 2017, but honestly I don’t think it’s in any of the big teams. Maybe Manor…or maybe nothing….
When it seemed that the signing of Pascal Werhlein was more than evident, now it seems that the situation is taking a turn over. Or at least that is the feeling that the latest rumors and that Mercedes is leaving to see. They seem to be playing with all of this to make it more “entertaining” this stop of the F1. Since then almost every Christmas there are unknowns, but these even more. The pilot of the quarry could not get the Mercedes in 2017 as it is speculating.
Now the rumor Valtteri Bottas is gaining strength. It seemed that he was the balance more inclined by Pascal, despite the fact that Bottas was one of the names that have always been considered to replace Rosberg, with Alonso, Verstappen, Vettel, etc, But in the last hours, Williams talks about his pilot, and they seem willing to stay or go under a series of favorable conditions on the part of Mercedes, both economic and technical.
The latest rumors put Bottas in Mercedes and Massa returning to Williams despite having fired this season of F1. It could be the withdrawal shorter history if this happens. Though honestly I don’t think that Felipe’s return to not be that Williams needs a rider with a lot of experience and we offer a few different conditions that I had this year. Without a doubt, if you yield to Bottas, could get an engine pata negra and a financial injection.
By the way, to those of us who read, or read to me, from AM I want to wish you a happy holidays and a prosperous 2017…
