Williams retain Valtteri Bottas, Felipe Massa for 2016 F1 season

Williams announce that drivers Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa will remain with the team for the 2016 Formula 1 season.

Williams have retained drivers Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa for the 2016 Formula 1 season.

The duo will be Williams's drivers for a third straight season and the announcement, which was made on Twitter in the below video this morning, ends speculation that McLaren's Jenson Button could rejoin his first F1 team next year.

Bottas had been linked with a move to Ferrari, but any hopes he had of racing for the Italian team were dashed when fellow Finn Kimi Raikkonen was retained for next season.

Williams are third in the 2015 constructor standings behind Mercedes and Ferrari going into this weekend's Italian Grand Prix.
