23 points down with 10 races left...thats close enough with enough races left that merc wont explicitly place a supporting role requirement on him...thats not really this team's style imo.

Bottas is growing in confidence and ability with each race...its actually been very cool to see.

while he lacks LH's raw speed so quali will be an issue but i do also think he is much better at race starts over LH and given this car's advantage tends to mean a Merc in front will tend to stay out in front, i do think VB should very much be considered a title contender this year.

for me, i dont think the issue of number 2 (or even 1.5) has been settled yet!

Oh dear, Bottas. Today was not a good day. 6th. Oh dear. Could have been 3rd.

Yes that was a bit unfortunate, looks like he needs a bit of luck to stay in the title fight. Support roll for Lewis coming up

I think Mercedes will be content enough with his performance so far this year. He's handily beating Räikkönen and has taken the odd win. I think a year to settle in at the front of the grid is reasonable. Next year (assuming he stays) will determine whether he's a genuine challenger for the title or a solid number two.
