Massa to stay on at Williams - Bottas to Mercedes
Valtteri Bottas' move to Mercedes as Lewis Hamilton's team-mate and Felipe Massa's return to replace him at Williams are close to completion.
Massa, 35, has agreed with Williams to postpone his retirement for at least a year after Mercedes made a pitch for Bottas, 27, to replace Nico Rosberg.
Rosberg announced his retirement after winning the world title last month.
The deal for Bottas to leave Williams for Mercedes is also lined up and is set to be completed in the new year.
Although the deals are not yet finalised, they are as good as done and both will happen over the coming fortnight, BBC Sport has learned.
All the building blocks are now in place - Williams will let Bottas go once a suitable deal with Mercedes for compensation is agreed and Massa has agreed to come back to F1 after announcing his retirement in September.
Now, only the finishing touches need to be put in place, which is expected to happen following the Christmas period.
Free engines & Mercedes pays Massa's salary.
This years Xmas card from Felipe Massa
He didn't send one to me - how come you got one?
Cos I'm a really nice guy.
...and I'm not...
You said it, not me.
He's a close personal friend of mine.*
As we now have the 2017 thread up and running I'll lock this one now.
