    Great job today, again. Much younger tyres, slipstream, and 384890 mistakes in last 5 laps. Great job as always!

    Ferrari putting Charles on the hards was crucial for that win.

    It’s a joke Bottas has that Merc seat. Awful driver

    Leclerc had a faster car and drove a pretty perfect race. If Lewis can't get past Leclerc then you shouldn't expect Bottas to get past him. He does his job as the 2nd driver brilliantly

    I think the thing is people don’t really want second drivers. Or if there’s going to be it needs to be a young up and coming driver like Leclerc.

    Bottas is a fine driver but he’s never winning a championship. It’s all too easy at the moment for Hamilton to rack up titles. Put Ocon in there and he might just have the talent to push him.

    As long as prime Hamilton is at Mercedes no other Merc driver is going to win the championship let's be honest, not even Leclerc or Verstappen

    So you’re saying that Verstappen couldn’t beat Hamilton in a fair fight? I think it’d be a decent competition.

    Bottas had a lot fresher tyres. He was faster. You could clearly see he was a lot faster but he made a mistake every single lap.
    We had this exact conversation before after Hockenheim where he couldn't pass Racing Point and Toro Rosso. Come on.......He's like Gasly who does better in lesser team.

    You are Finnish aren't you? Because there's no way a Mercedes fan is happy with Bottas.

    I am. He does his job, why would they change a working unit in Hamilton and Bottas? They have chemistry and they work together

    Correct me if i'm wrong but don't you think that Mercedes already is the best team? Why change it if it's working. Who says that if they get let's say Verstappen it's going work, sure he has the talent but I don't think Mercedes wants another Rosberg situation.

    Off the top of my head I'd say Verstappen, Leclerc, Ricciardo and maybe even fraudy Seb would actually give Hamilton competition in the same car. Last time Lewis had a competent driver next to him in Rosberg, he didn't win the world title.

    Bottas is absolutely awful and shouldn't be anywhere near the Merc drive.

    Yeah I think Merc are the best team but that’s all down to Hamilton really. But he won’t go on forever so need to be planning for the future.

    Plus the majority of fans just want a real good title fight.

    Verstappen yes, Leclerc, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. He’s made a lot of errors this year as well as the brilliant moments.

    The other 2, not a chance.
