To be fair, with Norris around, they don't really need a Mercedes driver at all. It's a shame Ricciardo somehow can't get up to speed or come to grips, as Daniel is undeniably a fantastic asset. Odd how ever since he left RBR, he hasn't really come to full grips.
Norris is P3, in front of Bottas, without driving an AMG or RBR. Mclaren are missing that extra 'oumpf'. When they find it, it's gonna be bonkers.
As if it wasn't already 100% guaranteed Russell was going to get Bottas seat,
after Bottas playing a Bowling ball in the race, that would have been final nail in the coffin.
Now though i am in no single way a fan at all of Bottas - i did feel a bit for him after his crash.
I might have been mistaken but to me it almost looked like he was crying when he was sitting on top of those tires after taking out Perez and Norris in one move, and multi-kill points in damaging Max and extra points for the aftermath having effect for Ricciardo, Stroll, Leclerc, etc.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
