Yep, I do agree that it makes sense for Bottas to stay at Merc, especially when there is a big set of rule changes. I also think that a lot of people will have to re-evaluate their view of Bottas. He is a great driver, just stuck against probably the best driver the sport has ever seen.
Well, Red Bull Racing will put a two or three year deal in front of "free agent" Russell, so it is up to Mercedes-Benz whether they want to counter that deal or offer a contract to Bottas instead.
To still not offer Russell a contract would understandably force Russell to defect to the Red Bull fold.
(Unless Perez improves dramatically it is very unlikely Perez would be renewed.)
