Sponsor backs Mercedes or Ferrari seat for Bottas
Mar.28 - Valtteri Bottas' sponsor thinks the Finnish driver will continue to race with a top team beyond 2018.
Bottas had a bad start to his season in Australia with a qualifying crash, with Lewis Hamilton saying he missed having his teammate's support in the race.
Bottas backed himself to bounce back in Bahrain next weekend, and it's a message echoed by his strongest sponsor, Antti Aarnio-Wihuri.
Aarnio-Wihuri, one of Finland's wealthiest men, speculated that a move to Ferrari cannot therefore be ruled out for Bottas.
"I think Raikkonen's time is coming to an end," he said. "Last year we saw that his driving started to become inconsistent. Probably his interest is starting to fade."
"In the meantime, every F1 driver dreams of driving for Ferrari at some point."
