Bottas: For now it's between me and Lewis

Valtteri Bottas has said that the title is between him and his five time world champion teammate Lewis Hamilton, providing Mercedes keep their advantage over the rest of the field.

Bottas has won two of five races this season, with Hamilton winning the other three, giving the Brit a seven-point lead in the championship.

Bottas seems to know that with Red Bull and Ferrari way off the pace, he is probably in a two horse race for the drivers’ title.

The Finn said: “For now it’s between me and Lewis, but it’s a massively long season. There’s many teams that, especially at some tracks, are very close and it’s going to be a big development race between teams all through the season.”

“But if it’s going to be me and Lewis, every single opportunity is going to be key. That’s why Barcelona for me was annoying. I felt I worked hard for this weekend and for the qualifying, to be on pole, on this circuit where it means a lot and I lost it at the start. But that’s life and there’s 16 opportunities to go. That’s plenty.”
