Can't find the source now - somewhere on YouTube I think.
You're right - I found an article where Bottas admits the prospect of a 1 year contract with Mercedes didn't appeal to him and Alfa offered him a 3 year contract as their designated 'number 1' driver so he has taken it and now feels more relaxed knowing his future for the next 3 years.
