Bottas partners Hamilton ?



It seems to be a done deal then – Valtteri Bottas is going to Mercedes FI to partner Lewis Hamilton for the 2017 season. It’ll be interesting to see if the Finn can “push” Lewis – I’d say he’ll be closer to Lewis than Rosberg, but LH is VERY hard to beat after all.

There’s something no-one predicted – Rosberg wins the title and immediately retires…….strange decision, but Nico is his own man, and it’s up to him, pure and simple…….in my view he has secured the title and was highly unlikely to secure another one……just saying !

Watch this space I guess.

Happily married to Jen with many children and now grandchildren, we live on acreage in northern NSW with 2 dogs, a Pug called Lulu, a Labrador called Molly, 5 horses and a Tonkinese cat called Claude. I'm a motorsport fanatic and have competed extensively in the UK, France and now Australia, mainly in Alfa Romeo and Lotus cars. Put simply, if it has wheels, I'm interested in it !

One thought on “Bottas partners Hamilton ?”

  1. So, the worst kept secret in F1 is now official – Bottas will line up alongside Hamilton (both probably on the front row of the grid !) for the 2017 season.

    And who’s taking the Bottas Williams seat ?- non other than Felipe Massa, having retired from Williams & F1 in November !

    You couldn’t make it up !
