World champion-1997 Jacques Villeneuve believes that Mercedes should stop to demonstrate equality and to bet on Lewis Hamilton, who for eight stages before the end of the season is at a distance of seven points from the leader Sebastian Vettel while Valtteri Bottas is losing 33.
“Bottas is not able to perform at the same level with Hamilton. Obviously they are in different leagues, – said Villeneuve in an interview with AUTOSPORT. Mercedes should make a bet on Lewis, but Toto Wolff doesn’t want this because it supports the Bottom. Yes, he says he is no longer his Manager, but still protects it, because I still need to extend the contract for next season.
Mercedes risk. In Hungary they have already lost points, therefore, should consider the use of team tactics”.
