Either that or they're pretending too hard to be savvy and cool, but instead makes them look like Stephen Harper desperately trying to act like a human being.

Bottas beat Danny Ricc in an epic Renault Eurocup title race in 2008, was it?

They were the class of the field which included a lot of future talent..

In F3 their results appear to have been similar.

Ricciardo has a real killer instinct when it comes to overtaking, something quite akin to Montoya in that respect (who I maintain was THE overtaker of the modern era) but Bottas has shown a steely determination and ability to quickly pull a gap off the start on cold tyres (see Sochi and A1 Ring).

It would actually be very interesting to see these 2 paired in a team, let alone against Hamilton!

I just want to say that the idea of the Honey Badger and Bottas in the same team is not a bad thing to happen to them
