Agreed re: Bottas. He needs to put the car on pole and romp away to a win. He absolutely has to demolish who ever is the stand in driver - indeed, it's expected that he would so anything less than that will reflect very badly. He knows the car, he knows the car around this 75% of this circuit (a big plus point for him), and he's got the team around him.El Scorchio wrote: ↑Tue Dec 01, 2020 10:08 amHope Hamilton gets better soon.
Big weekend for Bottas then. How will he fare against someone else in the other car, and will he be able to win the race comfortably?
Or if Russell gets in that car and puts it top three, then Verstappen can probably kiss goodbye to getting in a Mercedes any time soon and possibly forever.
There is, ironically, actually a lot more pressure on Bottas this coming weekend than there has been all season.
