“Max is definitely a fantastic star of the future but he is not the only one. I see a group of really good young drivers who are not yet in the cars with which they can win. From that point of view, it is good to see how they develop.”
Mercedes have many options heading into the next season, with George Russell a viable option alongside Esteban Ocon at Alpine, however, Wolff remained clear they were committed to Bottas.
“Valtteri is our driver and I will always be loyal to our drivers and not speculate about the future,” Wolff explained.
