This has always been one of Merc’s strongest circuits.
Have a feeling Bottas is either going to be using an old Spec 2 or taking a grid penalty.
There aren't many more options, right ?
Anyway, last year the race turned out to be a total mess for Bottas .. can't recall the reason, but he was eaten alive being a sitting duck to Vet, Ver and Ric.
So if I were him, take the penalty and melt that ICE in just one race .. make it a qualification of 55 laps. That said .. I'm not him.
I still believe though it's smarter for a team like RB to take 5PU's a year (or maybe even 6), fight seriously for wins in 19 races, and secure that 2x 5th/6th.
But well, I'm not not nearly clever enough to work at RB either
