(cafetheology.org) – The clarification of the driver's question for the Formula 1 season 2018 is at the finish line at Mercedes. According to Sportchef Toto Wolff, only a few formalities of a contract extension with Valtteri Bottas stand in the way. "We just want to do the paperwork, we hope we can announce something soon," said Wolff on the edge of the Grand Prix of Belgium. But behind the scenes it is already agreed that the Finn has at least another year for Mercedes In Formula One. "We have always said that we are very satisfied with our current driver pairing and there is no reason to make a big change," says Wolff. Lewis Hamilton's contract will continue until the end of 2018. Botta's commitment is obvious for Mercedes, as convincing alternatives are not available except for Fernando Alonso. However, Wolff was excluded from the contract by the Spaniard in July of this year. The alleged flirtation with Sebastian Vettel, who had extended his contract with Ferrari last weekend by three years, was never more than that, according to Wolff. "We Have never spoken a word with Sebastian about a contract, "he explains. "Of course you see and meet each other, and there is sometimes a wink, but we have not had a serious conversation."
