Valtteri Bottas Reveals Timeline of His Leaving Mercedes

MDP Live - The Finnish driver, Valtteri Bottas, told of the process of his move from Mercedes last season. He said that he parted on good terms with the typical team with the nickname Silver Arrow.

When his contract expired in 2021, Valtteri Bottas had time to negotiate with Toto Wolff and other members of the team's management. At that time, Bottas asked for a new contract that lasted more than one year. He felt he needed a contract with a long duration to provide guarantees for his future. Unfortunately, Wolff did not accept Bottas' request and could only offer an extension for one year.

This made Bottas disappointed and finally chose to leave. If Mercedes were willing to comply with his request to give a two-year contract, it is not impossible that he would still be Lewis Hamilton's partner until now.

"We both agreed. He (Wolff) knew at some point we had to make a decision and it was done. I've decided, if I can't get a contract of more than two years at Mercedes, I will definitely go to find something new, " said Bottas when interviewed by local media.

"That will lead to a simple question, will he offer me (a contract) of two years or more? Wolff then said no, for now he can't. So, it's as simple as that," he said once again.
