BUDAPEST, Hungary — Mercedes has a point to prove at this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix, especially Valtteri Bottas.
His future at Mercedes will be settled during Formula One’s summer break, which follows Sunday’s race. Last weekend’s crash at the German GP has only increased the spotlight on the Finnish driver heading into the race.
“For sure it was not ideal,” Bottas said Thursday, reflecting on his Hockenheim crash. “Every race is important but when you know the team is making decision for the future … it can be very important.”
