Nico is always willing to talk about it. At least he was dedicated to it as it shows by him shaving his legs to go faster. But as you say, it took it all out of him

Hmm. This thread had dropped off the front page for some reason. Maybe because perhaps the "New" Bottas is actually the same as the old one after all? Or can he still turn things around and put up a title challenge this season? (I hope the answer is yes, because it is looking increasingly like no one else will).

2 consecutive races where not only was Bottas beaten by his teammate, but other cars also finished ahead of him.

“It’s not ideal so maybe it’s a bit of a wake-up call again, for sure I can always learn for it."

He should not need any "wake up call" at this point in his career.

Maybe hes just another Berger/Patrese/Barrichello in that he can beat his superstar team mate when hes really on it, but struggles to keep that consistency quite often

Hamilton plugs into Mercedes with just one click. He's a plug n' play driver. He's one of those drivers that does that with a team. Hamilton is all that Mercedes needs. They'd almost just field one car if the rules permitted it.

It's not team-driver intrigue or anything conscious by the team against Bottas. And of course, Bottas has his deficiencies, his talent is temperamental.

But I think if one driver fits hand-in-glove with a team - unless the other guy is a real sparkling Fangio whizzkid type - the other guy is inevitably going to get somewhat sidelined from the team. Bottas is unlikely to be driving a car finely honed to his tastes.

Would agree. Lewis on an off day can still do well. Bottas seems very hot or very cold.

Bottas is good. Hamilton is elite.
