Date published: August 25 2016

Valtteri Bottas says he is in a “good position at the moment” as talks about his future in Formula 1 continue.

Although Williams are hoping to retain the Finn for a further season, Renault are believed to be chasing his signature.

According to reports in the Danish press, both teams have put firm offers on the table for next season.

“It’s not done yet, but I’m confident we will find a good solution,” Bottas told reporters at Spa.

“There are ongoing talks. Hopefully during September everything should be fixed one way or another.

“But I feel like I’m in a good position at the moment. We still need to wait and see what’s going to happen, whether we stay here or not.”
