Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas was pleased with their second place in the Grand Prix of Mexico.
“After the incident in conjunction of the second and third turns [with the participation of Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton] race was easy for me, because I was able to avoid trouble, said Bottas. – I went second and was struggling to keep up with max, but could not keep up with him.
At some point of the race we had to reduce the load on the brakes because they were overheated. The same situation was and with the engine, which I was losing time.
In any case, it’s nice to be back on the podium. I believe that squeezed the maximum out of the car”.
Also, Valtteri congratulated the fourth championship title of team mate Lewis Hamilton.
“When I passed in the Mercedes, nothing about him was known, except that he is a very good rider – continued the Finn. – This year he confirmed his status as the top pilot, but I also learned that he’s a great guy and a regular person like all of us.
From the beginning of the year, we respect each other. However, I did not know that he works hard. He really deserved this title”.
