Valtteri Bottas MUST win French GP this weekend to have ANY chance of avoiding Mercedes axe at end of season

VALTTERI BOTTAS must win the French Grand Prix this weekend to have any chance of staying with Mercedes next season – and even that might not be enough to stop him getting the axe.

“If I look at the big picture, for sure I still have a good few years in me. I feel like year on year I keep improving on certain areas and keep getting better.

“I’m quite far from the oldest drivers on the grid so, in theory, I still have time, but you just don’t know what the future holds. I take it weekend by weekend and see what comes.”

However,  his performances this season, plus a lack of suitable options, could mean Bottas’s best chance of staying in F1 would be to return to Williams.

Ironically, he could be Russell’s replacement with the Brit moving in the opposite direction.
