I feel the Bottas love here is more to do with him being a patsy that Hamilton trounces, than anything else.
It's like they can't stand the thought of Russell coming in and beating their favorite driver. All that wasted money on merchandise and all...
I think all the hate Bottas gets here, and all the hype Russell gets, is because some people just can't handle Lewis achieving what he has. Thus they are constantly looking for anything and everything they can to try and diminish his achievements.
Bingo! and they will never fully understans or appreciate the levels to the sport.
Ever since 2008 fans have been trying to find that kryptonite for Hamilton and they keep having to recalibrate their perceptions when they realize he is extremely dificult to beat.
2009.. less aero cars, he wont be able to adapt because he can only drive high downforce cars and he only know how to drive qualy pace.
2010 to 2013.. He is not technical enough to manage a race with KERS. He will lose to the experience of Button and tyre management. He doesnt know how to nurse tyres. Rosberg beats the great shumacher, he is tplop draeer. Rosberg will beat Hamilton in 2013 because Lewis is not in mclaren so Ron cannot protect him and sheild his mediocrity. He will never be Champion again. Just a one timer like Villenueve.
2014 to 2016.. New cars.. Hamilton made the wrong choice this year will prove it.. oh the car is dominant. He beats Nico to championship twice and has more wins when Nico does win the wdc. Oh Nico is mediocre.. Lewis got helped by the double points rule in 2014.
2017 and onward.. Bottoas comes into the team as prodigy young driver, dominanting philipe Massa in the Williams. Bottas will beat Hamilton!!! When Bottas gets beaten all of a sudden he is crap.
It goes on and on. Now we are in the phase where Lewis is almost 40 years old, and young F1 fans havent watched the sport close enough and truly believe a man with 7wdc, that has a won a race every year since he competed. that has beaten a young 2x defending wdc..is all of a sudden so weak that some young inexperience guys are going to come into his team and embarass him.
I would like to see Max or Russel in the same team as Hamilton one day, in fact Hamilton moving to their team, and it will surprise the max and russel fans. They will just find new excuses though.
