Head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff admitted that the newcomer Valtteri Bottas not much time to prove himself.
Finn replaced in the “Silver arrows” retired champion of the world in 2016, Nico Rosberg. The contract was signed for one year and believed to be before mid-year, he will need to prove that he is worthy of a place in the team in the future.
“It is obvious that time plays in favor Valtteri, said wolf in an interview with Turun Sonomat. He has to prove that it had replaced Rosberg and able to look at the background of Lewis.
Bottas should also help the team move in the right direction and to develop the car. So he will have to quickly learn how to swim. In General, I agree with Nicky Laudau that after the first four races will be clear, does it justify our expectations or not.”
