Seems a bit harsh… especially as this was probably a team decision
I bet he’s screwing it was him who tried & not Lewis… that is unless they both tried & he just screwed it up
What have you been eating?
Bottas made the spin, not the team. Who is driving that car?
a team decision. geesh.
Bottas drove off like a maniac, worse than any rookie. Not even mazepin or maldonado ever made such an embarassing move. And worst of it all, he made a 'pjooong' sound and jokingly responded to the team who was responding like 'what on earth are you doing'.
It's very true, this could have resulted in injury. Imagine the Mclaren team being out, or any team for that matter, he would have collected not one but multiple pit crew staff.
I think he's actually getting away with it pretty lightly, just 3 grid spots.
But the truth of the matter is once again, Bottas fails short and ruins and chances for Mercedes. Even if Bottas manages a P1 or P2, he'll start P3 or P4. More likely is a Max P1, a Hamilton or Perez P2, And Bottas to qualify probably 4th, meaning he'll start 7th and will make no impact whatsoever.
It's really getting embarassing now. IF Mercedes was concidering renewing his contract he's throwing everything out the window now. Hell i would be pissed af if i was Toto. I also fail to understand what's going on.
Is Bottas actually aware he's gone next season and is now playing the jokester and not giving af? That would be a career killer for sure if he did.
The thing that is clear to me though in particular is that Mercedes has been spiraling downward with the passing of Lauda. Niki had some certain grip on the team to steer things right somehow. They're lost and Toto doesn't have the shoulder or support beam he needs or could fall back on before.
