“I saw some of the stories and sometimes they are quite funny to hear about because I know what the case is and what isn’t. There are a lot of people making up stuff. The fact is at the moment l am just focusing this season and getting the maximum for us at the team. The rest, I don’t know yet,” Bottas said.

Bottas was one of the drivers who had a great 2014 F1 season, finishing fourth in the championship behind Infiniti Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo.
