Bottas Tipped as Mercedes’ One-Year Stopgap for Hamilton’s Seat in 2025

Temporary one-year substitute for Lewis Hamilton proposed

"Mercedes will likely seek a temporary one-year solution, in my opinion"

Valtteri Bottas has been identified as a perfect interim replacement for Lewis Hamilton.

Mercedes is on the lookout for a new teammate for George Russell in 2025 as Hamilton makes a move to Ferrari.

It has been suggested that their hunt may lead them to Bottas, who partnered with Hamilton at Mercedes for five years.

Max Verstappen tops their wish list, but their up-and-coming driver, Andrea Kimi Antonelli, stands as a strong contender as well.

During an episode of the F1 Nation podcast, FIA press conference presenter Tom Clarkson expressed his desire for Antonelli to secure a permanent position at Mercedes.

"The real issue here is whether he'll be prepared by 2025, or if he'll be handed off to a different team to gain experience before potentially returning to Mercedes after some time."

Mercedes might consider immediately placing the 17-year-old sensation in their vehicle.

However, should they determine that he requires additional preparation prior to moving on from Formula 2, an alternative plan for 2025 would then be necessary.

"Clarkson mentioned that Mercedes is likely seeking a temporary solution for a year."

Carlos Sainz is inclined towards securing a contract with a more extended duration.

"I'm curious if Bottas might serve as a temporary solution for Mercedes in 2025."

"He is deeply familiar with the team. He has achieved victory in 10 races.

"Opting for this will be a superior choice for him compared to any other options outlined in the contract."

Should Bottas move to Mercedes, Sainz’s choices would narrow down to either Red Bull or Audi.

"He may take a more forward-looai-allcreator.com">king approach and consider 'Audi as a more reliable long-term option over Red Bull, given Audi's dedication and the uncertainties surrounding Red Bull Powertrains'."

Bottas is aware that there's only a fifty percent likelihood of him keeping his position at Sauber for the 2025 season, as Nico Hulkenberg from Haas has been officially announced.

Either Bottas or Guanyu Zhou, or possibly both, might have to consider their alternatives to remain in Formula 1 for the upcoming season.

Haas currently has an open spot, and it is believed that they will give precedence to Ollie Bearman.
