I don't understand Finnish so I can't say if he actually said this.
It seems that he is also going to play psychological mind games.
Rosberg told him to. :D
He recently posted a photo on his Instagram story and wrote #notvegan underneath. :)

Bottas told Finnish TV: "We always discuss during the meetings what time the training starts,
where you can make test starts, etc. The team shows us where it can be done,
and that's where I made those test starts. I think it's pretty simple,
so it's Lewis' own fault for doing it that way. ”

Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

So you call me a liar ?! Thank you! :-(

You're lying yourself, because you couldn't have searched for more than 24 hours ago on his Instagram story!
I wrote "recently" and that is not in the last 24 hours!
Maybe there are people here who have also seen it?


Edit: Google is your best friend. :-) Well Mr Dans79 ???

Valtteri Bottas has already started psychological warfare on Instagram. Teammate Hamilton is vegan and tries to get others to follow the same path as well, but Bottas doesn't seem to agree.

The Finn is in the picture behind the barbecue, while he is cooking a big steak. In this photo he had the hashtag #NotVegan jotted down, which is something Lewis Hamilton will certainly not encourage.

Well ofcourse, you have to look at the color of the car :mrgreen:

What intrigues me is they called them after the race to hear from them and then issue "No Further Action"

Why wasnt that option available for Lewis? why straight to 2 x 5 sec penalty?
It's almost as if Hamilton's post race comments were correct, isn't it?
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"

And doing the same thing as and when told to without looking for ways to improve is why he's not a 6 times champion.

Bottas needs to do more talking on track. Making comments and posting BBQ pics isn't going to get under Hamilton's skin. Win 2 or 3 races on the bounce by being quicker in the race and he'll get Hamilton's attention. Otherwise it's just "Valtteri who?"

I don’t really get it, I’m not vegan, but I respect people’s beliefs, I could and wouldn’t mind going vegetarian myself but think there’s a few stuff I’d miss, so.... haven’t!

so not exactly sure how this is supposed to appear big and clever.

I don’t like BLM organisation, I don’t kneel, but it’s not stopped me supporting Lewis, but it’s important issue to him, so that’s up to him. I did like his bring awareness of the Amazon rainforest.
Sometimes you just want to watch a race, without snide digs or political messages, but that’s not the world we live in.

Makes the comment by Lewis that the FIA is trying to get him, not seem as far fetched as some would have you believe!

Leclerc is managed by Jean Todts son and was recently pictured in a family-esque photo together sitting in a couch.
He didn't get penalized for taking out Stroll either so I think it's more that Leclerc has a special free pass and Hamilton is an easy target and scrutinized for using F1 as "his" platform. I think it's fine he uses Twitter but he should not be pushing his agenda and calling out other drivers who don't do it his way. Bottas should be allowed to wear white overalls too, or teal or whatever.

Nope. Sorry, I don't give a hoot. 8)

On the other hand, Bottas is the one being made to look ordinary and the one who appears to be taking things personally. Almost as if he's lost the mental game already. Kind of looks like Hamilton got under Bottas's skin, in fact. :lol:

I think his ‘F you’ comments over the radio on winning the race were a strong suggestion he’s lost the mental game- at least this season. The pressure of being Hamilton’s team mate must be unreal though.
