Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas said not to worry if teammate Lewis Hamilton will be faster at the start of the season 2017.
Valtteri admits that he still has much to learn and to adapt to work in a Mercedes.
Finn got the chance to move to the German team after the decision on retirement took the world champion in 2016 Nico Rosberg. Before Bottas for four seasons defended the colors of Williams.
“I know I was very lucky with the fact that Nico has finished his career, said Williams in an interview with Sport Bild. – My goal was to one day be driving the best car. Thanks to him, it happened. Now I will be able to Express themselves.
Can’t say that I feel a great pressure: it is the same as always. I realize that I had a great opportunity. I want to pilot the best car. I can do much more to win than to lose.
Hamilton? This is a great guideline for me.
It will be interesting to see his piloting skills and how he sets up the car. I can see three-time world champion at work.
I will not surrender and will not panic if Lewis will go faster than me. With the first race I will try to give my maximum, but obviously, I still have a lot to learn”.
