So we all know Rosberg has left the battle ground and returned to roost with his family. But that leaves the big question of who gets the coveted Mercedes seat and pairs up with Britain's own; Lewis Hamilton.
So... what if the Finnish man in the white Williams takes up to role? Valtteri Bottas is a man that through out his career has shown real bursts of skill and impresses many who love the support. But with Massa as his team mate over the previous years has he really been driven? Has he really been pushed? Have we seen everything he has to offer or is he really just a midfield driver? A man to thicken the heard?
He impressed most in the rain as one would expect, most notably his third place start in Canada 2013 after an impressive qualifying in a car that struggled. But the question still begs an answer, what if Bottas takes the seat? Well Hamilton would have a partner that doesn't have too much of a personality and as much natural talent as the Brit, meaning that maybe he could simply dominate. However, the real focus is what repercussions this move would have further down the grid? If Bottas moves then Williams have an open seat and the man tipped for that seat is none other than the Brazilian; Felipe Nasr.
So does Bernie have his hands in many pies? If Bottas moves to the Silver Arrows and Nasr takes up the new drive at Williams then what does this do to the bigger picture? Well the main point is it gives more hope to a Brazilian GP being on the calendar next season, a fan favourite that's for sure. It also frees up a seat in a struggling Sauber but removes one of its largest sponsors. Who would fill the back marker position? The biggest talking point has to be the survival of South America's greatest track but would is it worth having it on the calendar for one more year to see a driver with as poor a record as Nasr take on a more promising seat? Or could it go to someone much more exciting? Sainz maybe? What do you think? Would you like to see the Brazilian GP next year if the trade off is Nasr possibly ruining the Williams chance of success?
