Bottas on Hamilton: “Sooner or later you meet a driver who is better than you”


Alfa Romeo pilot Valtteri Bottas spoke about working with Mercedes, where he was teammate Lewis Hamilton.

“I was Lewis’ partner for five years, and now, thinking about it, I understand that this is a great honor. After all, we can say that he is a living legend! He’s a great guy and a great, really fast racer. He certainly made me work hard to try and get ahead of him.

Sometimes it was possible, but at the end of the season – no. It just so happened. Sooner or later you meet a rider who is better than you and you have to admit it. For me, this is normal. I am glad that sometimes, when I was at the peak of my form, I was able to overcome him.»– quotes the official website of Formula 1 as Bottas said.

Bottas moved to Alfa Romeo at the end of the 2021 season, having previously played for Mercedes for 5 years in a row.

The first round of the 2022 Formula 1 season will take place from 18 to 20 March in Bahrain.
