Valtteri's at the top of Merc's list with an engine discount in the mix, but Williams will take a pass on Pascal and won't budge unless they can find a more senior pilot to help with development and guiding the Canuck rook, Stroll. Felipe, what say you?

Lewis Hamilton warns Mercedes over big name Nico Rosberg replacement

"Mercedes have made it plain that Bottas is their man to replace Rosberg and Williams confirmed they would be open to his move if a replacement could be found.

"Williams’ deputy team principal, Claire Williams, told BBC Sport the team would let Bottas leave 'if an experienced, credible alternative was available'. They also hinted that Felipe Massa could return, despite retiring at the end of this season."


Mercedes will not announce Nico Rosberg’s F1 replacement until the New Year

"Although there will be no decision taken on which driver will join Lewis Hamilton at the Brackley-based squad for 2017, Mercedes is believed to have offered Williams a £10million reduction in its customer engine bill and Pascal Wehrlein as a replacement for Bottas. [...]

"Would Symonds and staff be satisfied with Massa’s return? The signs from Claire Williams are that they would and with a significant payout from Mercedes, who are saving upwards of £30 million over the next two years on Rosberg’s salary, they can afford it."

Idea of Sebastian Vettel to Mercedes F1 in 2018 getting some traction

What Mercedes' interest in Valtteri Bottas means for F1 2017

"The name of Carlos Sainz has been mentioned in recent days, and with Pierre Gasly in the wings, the Red Bull camp actually has a spare driver to hand that it might want to promote.

"Sources say that there have been conversations regarding Sainz – but the suggestion is that Red Bull was stringing Mercedes along, and rather enjoying the fact that the world champion team was up against it. He was never going to be made available. [...]

"For Mercedes, Bottas is at least a realistic target, and Williams a team that was willing to talk. [...]

"... the driver question is the big one.

"Felipe Massa ticks all the boxes, at least as a temporary solution for 2017. But does he want to do it?

"... the Brazilian's retirement announcement was prompted by the fact that Stroll was coming, Bottas wasn’t leaving, and there wasn’t going to be a place for him at Williams. [...]

"It’s a solution that would have huge appeal to Bernie Ecclestone, who is keen to have a Brazilian driver on the grid....

"As for Bottas, he has four years of experience behind him, and as such is perfectly poised to make the step up to the world champion team. [...]

"There’s also the intriguing question of whether he will only be guaranteed a Mercedes race seat for 2017. The superstars were not available at short notice for next season, but some big names will be out of contract and on the market for 2018."

Meanwhile, Paddy Lowe seems to be replacing Pat Symons as technical director at Williams....

Tech chief Symonds parts ways with Williams F1 team

"It was believed that Lowe's arrival could allow Symonds to retire at the end of 2017 after a transition phase, but the process appears to have been accelerated. [...]

"Symonds' Williams exit comes against the backdrop of uncertainty regarding the outfit's 2017 line-up, brought on by Nico Rosberg's shock decision to retire from Mercedes and the German marque's subsequent interest in Valtteri Bottas, who Symonds dubbed 'crucial' to the Grove-based teams future efforts."
