Multi-year Agreement Between Valtteri Bottas and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport
Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport today completed its driver line-up for the 2019 season, and potentially beyond, with confirmation that Valtteri Bottas will stay with the team next season.
The 28-year-old Finn has signed a one-year contract extension with the team, with an option for a further year in 2020.
Since joining Mercedes at the beginning of 2017, Valtteri has scored three Grand Prix victories and five pole positions.
Last season, his first with the team, he played a key role in winning Mercedes’ fourth consecutive constructors’ championship.
For 2018 he has made a significant step forward in performance and complements Lewis Hamilton as part of the strongest driver pairing in the sport today.
