Valtteri Bottas’ managers have played down rumours linking the on-form Finn with a move to Ferrari.
Italy’s La Gazzetta dello Sport reported this week that, perhaps in view of replacing its current Finn Kimi Raikkonen in 2016, Ferrari has made exploratory advances towards 25-year-old Bottas in recent days.
A strong Williams driver is Nico Rosberg’s best hope of winning the 2014 title against the odds.
That is the claim of former F1 driver Timo Glock, who six years ago played a starring role in the championship showdown when Lewis Hamilton managed to pass him on the thrilling last corner of the Brazil finale.
After a run of four podiums in five races, Valtteri Bottas had a less enjoyable Italian grand prix.
The Finn had to settle for fourth, while his teammate Felipe Massa scored his first podium of 2014. The solid team result meant Williams passed Ferrari on the fabled marque’s home soil for third place in the constructors’ world championship.
