Formula One world champions Mercedes announced what they said was a "no-brainer" of a deal Wednesday by signing Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas for another season alongside Lewis Hamilton.Bottas joined from Williams in January after Hamilton's previous teammate, Germany's 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg, decided to retire within days of winning the title last November.The 28-year-old has won two races so far this season, in Austria and Russia, and is third in the standings with a 41-point gap to championship leader Hamilton.Bottas joined on a one-year-deal and his new contract still leaves everything open for 2019, when the driver market is likely to go through major upheaval with several top names in the spotlight.
