Why Bottas Does NOT Want To Make Hamilton Angry

222 062 Näkymät

Valtteri Bottas joined Mercedes in 2017 after Nico Rosberg announced a shock retirement. Ever since then, teammate Lewis Hamilton has held the clear advantage when it comes to the Drivers’ Championship. In fact, Nico Rosberg remains the only driver to have defeated Hamilton in the hybrid era and some have suggested that Bottas should adopt the techniques Rosberg used to best Hamilton in 2016. Bottas, however, does not agree and he has now told Motorsport why

I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:
Bottas Does Not Want To Make Hamilton Angry
Bottas began by explaining the team dynamics
“I think our strength as a team is that we really work together as a team. Of course we race against each other, but that's it. We know very well that the team can only benefit from good mutual cooperation. As a result, I will not hide data from him or do similar things”
He stressed the need for a harmonious environment
“In my view, good team spirit is often underestimated in the sports world, it is very important to maintain motivation and avoid conflict”
He then responded to the suggestions that he should emulate Rosberg
“I've been told many times that I need to change myself and become a kind of Nico Rosberg . But I'm not Nico Rosberg. I want to speak with my performance on the track and only race fairly”
He then explained why mind games aren’t a useful strategy against Hamilton
“I know Lewis quite well now and I know that playing mental games does not bring any benefit. Of course, it could be annoying for him, but I am also wasting my own energy on that”
He further elaborated on why he does not want to make Hamilton angry by using such tactics to sum up his words
“Besides, I think such an approach will just make him angry and that makes him drive even better. I want to win my own way. I keep trying new things. I always look to the future and know that there are still opportunities to come. At the same time, those opportunities are not endless. I know I will not get another fifteen seasons to beat Lewis. This season I really have to do everything I can”

“As far as” Lewis Hamilton’s father Alexander Hamilton is “aware”, Lewis “will carry on racing. He loves racing, he loves what he does”
He further emphasized that “it’s nothing to do with targets” and that Lewis is “not racing for trophies, he races because he loves what he does and also he loves to inspire others”
Formula 1 has confirmed that the 2021 season will begin on the 26th of March in Bahrain
F1’s CEO Stefano Domenicali is “pleased to confirm that the number of races planned for the” 2021 “season remains unchanged”
He further stressed that the “global pandemic has not yet allowed life to return to normal”
He, however feels that they “showed in 2020 that” they “can race safely as the first international sport to return and” they “have the experience and plans in place to deliver on” the upcoming season
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has stated that they “have to address the weak points and change the car, and to do that” they “have to use tokens”
He also added that “other teams do not have to do that, which is a disadvantage for” Ferrari which is why he expects “very strong competition in 2021”
Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has said that they “also face the huge challenge of slightly modified regulations for 2021 and a huge change in the rules for 2022”
He added that “there are factors that work against” them “and that motivates” them “greatly”
He also feels that despite this “there are also factors that work for” them because they believe they “have a good organisation. In general terms”, they “embrace change and have done so in the past”
Wolff further confirmed that they “have to structure” themselves “in a different way than usual because of the budget cap”
A spokesperson for F1 has confirmed that there are no plans to secretly vaccinate everyone involved in F1 and “that no such plan is being worked on by either the FIA or Formula One”
Australian Grand Prix Corporation chairman Paul Little is “very excited to be able to confirm the rescheduling of the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix to 18-21 November 2021”
He added that “as the third-last race of the season, this provides the opportunity to safely host what could be the championship-decider”

Will Ferrari be more competitive this season than they were in 2020?

    • Rosberg was always inherently faster over one lap than Lewis in good conditions, he was never as good during a race.. unless he happened to be out in front without traffic and then he was gone. Big difference with Bottas as he's just not that quick.

    • @James Truth Dillon's just into making a lot of trashy content lately I think - I don't think Bottas is desperate, but someone I could mention sure is. Oppositely, James, I'd say Brundle is only human and entitled to his interpretations as we all are. I do think Martin whinges on a bit at times, probably because he has a lot left unsaid in his career and is a different generation, but generally speaking; I find that he does know what he is talking about. In answer to "flogging this horse to death" surely how Bottas wants to prosecute his career is upto him and not the rest of the world? It's becoming like Dillon et al were triple WDCs or something... Time to hit that unsubscribe button ;)

    • Is anyone else getting tired of the BARE FACED LIES that come from pundits and commentators spreading the absolute falsehood that you can beat Lewis by engaging in mind games. I don't care how many times LIARS like Dillon Shelly or Martin Brundle repeat this LIE, it will never make it true. Lewis was beaten in 2016 by staggeringly poor car reliability and repeated cheating from his teammate. Rosbergs attempts to get into Lewis' head or make him angry had ZERO effect on Lewis' performances and I'm sick of hearing these LYING commentators trying to convince the public otherwise. You're better than this Dillon, stick to the facts and stop repeating Brundles evidence free LIES.

  • You all can see that when Nico Roseburg made Lewis Hamilton Angry, he didn't win any more races not because Valtteri said it but you have to be Lewis partner to understand that Lewis drive the wheels out of the car when he feels someone is on his nerves to make a statement. You all go and look back and ask Roseburg also.

    Thaddeus EjioforThaddeus Ejiofor2 kuukautta sitten
  • Valtteri is right about not being Nico Roseburg. AND HE IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. YOU ALL SHOULD REMEMBER. ROSEBURG didn't win that championship. He knew that Lewis Hamilton will never have allowed him to win another and if you all were looking and listening, you might have seen Lewis say that and stressed on it. He also said (Nico Roseburg had won once) and that understand lined the fact that since the race together, Nico never won. We also have to know that Lewis did actually better than Roseburg that 2016. Lewis had all the glitches bad starts and DNFs. When he understood what Nico was doing, he was angry and decided not to allow Nico win any more and he was winning in Malaysia with fewer laps to go when his engine caught fire. And he went on from there to win even the Last race. Saying to Roseburg yyou're done winning. Nico Roseburg know Lewis Hamilton ment it. He also knew that Lewis Hamilton will never allow him. To win any more. That's the truth about Nico resigning or actually quitting and putting the whole Mercedes in a very serious situation that for me is unfortunate. In other words, Nico Roseburg cheated in that championship fight and Valtteri is very right not to want to be like Nico. He doesn't want it by all means. So all you brainless idiot's on you tube should leave this guy alone.

That was for sure the most patetic statement I can remember in over 40 years following F1. He sure does not deserve to be in F1.

  • And this is why we always have HAM-BOT-VER. So long as no one is able to disrupt the Merc dominance, it will almost always be HAM-BOT on podium. We have Bottas, who isn't a match for Lewis, and doesn't seem to be interested in challenging Lewis for 1st. Max, who is most certainly interested in getting 1st, doesn't have a car that can compete with the Mercs simply because the Mercs will just pull away on the straights. The rest of the field is 10, sometimes even 30 seconds behind the 3 of them. Is it any surprise Lewis is dominating the sport?

  • Rosberg quit F1 rather than drive another season with Hamilton who tried to steal Rosberg's Championship by his unsporting behaviour in the last race of the season. Bottas is a wimp. He was shown up by a replacement driver for Hamilton who was suffering from Covid 19 and whose victory was only thwarted by the one and only ever botched Mercedes tyre change. That cockup saved Hamilton's and Bottas' blushes!

I would study the lines Hamilton takes and then implement a faster better line or if trying to pass be like a ghost im in your right mirror then next second im in your left mirror or fake him him out!!!! You just gotta get in his head if you're a driver that can get in his head you can win💯 might be hard as f!$@ but it can be done. See and Rosberg naturally had that i can get into Hams mind easily. Thats why he's gotten 7 titles cause nobody on the grid cant get into his head like Rosberg. If Rosberg were to come back Hamilton would be looking in his mirror frequently at Rosberg as he's already in his head.

He's not Rosberg, thank heavens. He's a nice guy. A gentleman. And Mercedes would not have won seven straight championships without him. Quarterbacks get all the attention but they aren't worth a damn if a team has lousy receivers. Anyway, you can bet your bippy that it's Bottas, not you, who's laughing all the way to the bank.
