Mercedes need Hamilton to stay with a second driver who is not up to the job, such as Wehrlein. That could be the way to success in winning the WDC whilst the Red Bull drivers take points of each other and win a clear WCC.
Wombcat Yes I remember I quoting that out of jest and realise maybe I should have put a flutter on whoever gets it BUT Bottas is unproven so I am not sure if he is going to turn out like Nigel Mansell who many did not rate until you put him in a top car
Oh he is going to be a Nick Heidfeld - constantly steady eddie. I was personally hoping it would have been Button
Having said that if Hamilton is not focused then Bottas might rack up points and suddenly find himself in a position to control the championships
