Valtteri Bottas has admitted he would be open to moving to Ferrari if his Mercedes journey comes to an end.

Mercedes decide whether to extend the Fin’s contract until 2020.

“I think I’ve shown the team that I deserve to stay at Mercedes, but we’ll have to wait for a few more races,” Bottas said. “Nothing has been signed yet but I am trying to make progress so that everything goes well.

“Of course, if it hadn’t been for Lewis maybe I would have won more races but to be honest I wouldn’t change anything because the situation helps me progress. If I have to leave the Mercedes, I would like to be in the team that is in second place. At the moment that team is Ferrari.”

2021 regulations will dictate Vettel’s F1 future
