Valtteri Bottas is not going to remain in the shadows of Lewis Hamilton next season.
In 2017, the Finn was replaced in the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg and the first half of season played very confidently, winning the race in Sochi and Spielberg. But after the summer break, Valtteri seriously behind teammate Hamilton, gaining for seven races for 50 points less.
“Several times I was able to stay ahead of Lewis, but still I hoped for more, – quotes the words of Bottas Sky Sports F1. – He is very good and stable driver, but I have to believe in yourself. I don’t want to hang the label of the second number. Then do better to stay home.
It was an educational year for me. Next season will be different, because from the first race I’ll be in familiar surroundings. Just need to continue to work and learn from the problems that occurred to me this year”.
