When you have a team mate, who is clearly the better driver and the team is primarily setup around them, it can't be easy keeping oneself motivated, no matter how much you are getting paid.

Hamilton managed it in 2007, Charles managed it against Vettel last year, Danny managed it against Vettel in 2015.....hell even Robert managed it against Hamilton in 2016

I actually think people are being harsh on Bottas. I think he’s doing exactly the job that Mercedes want from him....problem is he’s not doing what the fans want, to beat Lewis.

He's not doing the job he wants to do though. He's not constantly losing out to Lewis on team orders, he knows full well that Hamilton is just better....

Bob was a special driver though. When things went wrong he always seemed to autocorrect.

Can’t disagree with that. Problem is it doesn’t matter what version of Bottas we get Lewis just seems to be better. Must be frustrating for Bottas, especially this weekend when it seemed he was on top during Friday

Kimi and Roman had hot tyres from doing an extra lap....Russell was racing well until that point but cold tyres v hot tyres on the restart cost him (according to teds notebook)

Robert was with Mercedes from the beginning, in 2010. Lewis joined in 2013 and won back to back WDC's in 2014 and '15. Robert won his WDC in 2016.

Not quite. It took four years for Bob to beat Lewis, after Lewis joined Mercedes and Bottas has been with Mercedes the same amount time and still hasn't beaten Lewis.

What is Bob doing these days?
