World champion 1997 Jacques Villeneuve believes that the Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas was able to fight for the title in 2018.
The canadian considers Finn as a “second room”, which should help Lewis Hamilton in the season of 2018.

“Mercedes won not only because their disposal is still the most powerful engine in the peloton, but due to the fact that Hamilton squeezed the maximum out of the car, – said Villeneuve. – As for the performances of Bottas, then I have them confused.
Though I see it as a solid “second number” for Mercedes, but still would have given his place to Wehrlein”.
In addition, Canada noted that Kimi Raikkonen is a stronger pilot than Bottas.
