Valtteri Bottas wants to sign a new deal with Williams, according to his manager.
The Finn has spent the whole of his Formula One career with the Grove outfit, making his debut in 2013 following a year as one of their test drivers.
Despite recording nine podiums on his way to fourth and fifth finishes in the Drivers’ Championship in 2014 and 2015 respectively, he has yet to claim his maiden race victory in F1.
However, he has regularly been linked with a high-profile move away to Ferrari and was tipped to replace Kimi Raikkonen at the Scuderia before his compatriot signed a new contract earlier this month.
Bottas’ agent, Didier Coton, has revealed the 26-year-old is keen to extend his stay with Williams, as he feels he has unfinished business with the team.
“Valtteri has been very adamant about his commitment towards Williams since the beginning of this season, especially because of the change in the regulations for next year, and the trust he has in them,” Coton told Autosport.
“There is a bit of an unfinished story between those two, and he wants to commit as much as he can to the team. He is in F1 to win, the team, of course, has the same objective, and both are working hard to achieve it.”
