• Finn signs new one-year deal to race alongside Lewis Hamilton
• Ricciardo and Verstappen contracts run to end of 2018 and 2019 respectively

Valtteri Bottas has signed a new one year deal to race for Mercedes in the 2018 Formula One season. The Finn has impressed alongside Lewis Hamilton at the team that has won the last three drivers’ and constructors’ championships. He has won twice this year and although expected to maintain his drive, the team had held off confirming the deal while the 2017 driver market remained fluid.

The one-year deal allows Mercedes to keep their options open, with Daniel Ricciardo contracted at Red Bull until the end of 2018 and Max Verstappen contracted with the same team until the end of 2019.
