Valtteri Bottas: Charles Leclerc is a very tough racer

Valtteri Bottas has praised Charles Leclerc for the way that he raced at the Italian Grand Prix and says that a Ferrari driver should always be a "tough racer." Bottas was unable to overtake and finished the race in second place.  

“I heard some talk in the press conference but I have no clue what happened [between Leclerc and Hamilton],” he is quoted by Autosport.com.

“But for sure he’s racing hard. When you’re in the lead there’s no way you want to give it up.

“For a young guy he is a very tough racer, which is good to see.

“As you should [be] when you’re a Ferrari driver.”

Bottas will hope that Leclerc does not keep winning and put pressure on his position in the championship.
