Esteban Okon signs a contract with Renault?

The head of the Mercedes team, Toto Wolff, has repeatedly said that he chooses a partner to Lewis Hamilton for 2020 between Valtteri Bottas and Esteban Okon. German Auto Bild, citing its sources, writes that Toto made his choice.

According to the publication, Esteban Okon will continue his career at Renault next year by signing a two-year contract with the French team. The young rider will replace Nico Hulkenberg and will become a partner of Daniel Riccardo.

An indirect confirmation of information about the contract of the Window can serve the recent words of Valtteri Bottas, who has no doubt that he will continue to appear in Formula 1 in 2020. Thus, if Windows really moves to Renault, then Valtteri will continue to play for Mercedes.

Where will Nico Hulkenberg go if the window contract with Renault is really signed? The most likely option for Nico is to play for Haas, especially since the team leader, Gunther Steiner, has a high opinion of the German rider.
