Belgium - Valtteri Bottas looks to have secured his future with Williams.

The Finn has been tentatively linked with a move to Renault, but the German-language Auto Bild, as well as Speed Week report that a deal has been done on a new two-year Williams deal.

Massa out, Button in?

The timing of the reports is interesting, amid rumours Bottas had an option in his current deal that would need to have been taken up by Williams by the end of August 2016.

However, sources indicate that Felipe Massa's deal is less likely to be renewed, with McLaren driver Jenson Button strongly linked with a return to Grove.

Deputy team boss Claire Williams said: "I think as we have said very clearly we are very happy with the job Felipe and Valtteri have done for us.

"I know everybody is waiting for our announcement now that lots of other teams have made theirs, but we are not ready to announce our lineup for 2017 yet. We are working through all our options, but I hope we will be able to make that announcement shortly."

Thank you for the cake @williamsmartiniracing ???? #VB77
