Valtteri Bottas this year celebrates its fourth season in Williams
and, so far, he has collected nine podiums in Formula 1,
but no victory. His compatriot Mika Salo, who was the pilot of
Ferrari, among other teams, says he “highly confident” that
Bottas will end up signed for Mercedes. “In these times it is not
you can win races in Williams and need to start winning soon.
You have to do that as best as possible and continue beating Massa in each
occasion, or who is his team-mate next year. And
then expect that there will be a seat at Mercedes”.
“Even if Kimi leaves, I do not see Ferrari fichándole”
Valtteri Bottas is represented by Aces Management, a company
managed by Didier Coton, Mika Häkkinen and Toto Wolff, maximum
head of the team Mercedes and started his career in the
Formula 1 with Williams, who recently sold the last
actions still retained. Therefore, it Salo says that “Toto
(Wolff) is their manager and for that I am very confident that we will
there. It has already proven that it is good. It is a pilot smart,
perfect for that case”.
Salo says that the worst thing that can happen to Bottas is to continue in
a computer that does not allow him to fight for victories, as is the case
current Williams. “Is the worst-case scenario for him. I do not see
Bottas going to any other site for the next year, there is
good seats available, and even if Kimi (Räikkönen) leaves him,
I don’t see Ferrari fichándole. Their manager is the boss of Mercedes,
so Ferrari will not join!”, he ended up commenting on the
expiloto Finnish to GPUpdate,net.
