It'll be great for Bottas if he really has got the seat. But I don't think he'll be able to challenge Lewis. No doubt he's a good driver, but I think he's a step down from Rosberg. If you wanted someone able to really challenge Lewis you'd go either Ricciardo, Verstappen or Alonso. Obviously all were unavailable, so of all options left, Bottas is probably a decent option. But I think there will be a very clear 1 and 2 in Mercedes.

I rate Bottas, he'd be a good choice IMO.

We can only wait and see. Judging by what I've read, I think I'm in the majority of thinking he'll be no match for Hamilton. That said, a lot of people thought Ricciardo would be no match for Vettel (I was somewhere in the middle) and he absolutely flogged him.

I agree, I think he is rather underated by most.

Any truth to them hiring a number 2 driver to assist only? Be very disappointed if that is the case.

You were right! Bottas has been a bit disappointing.

Bottas hasn't done as well as I thought he would this season, you could say earlier in the season he was getting used to the car/team, etc but by now he should be doing a lot better given the equipment he has got

Back on Rosberg it was great to see Nico as part of the Sky F1 team at the weekend, certainly made valid contributions to the telecast so hopefully he pops up more in that kind of role
