Harsh words on Bottas: What's going on with this guy?

With rumours now circulating for months that George Russell will take over the seat from Valtteri Bottas, it is up to the Finn to show what he has got this season. In Sunday's race at the Hungaroring however, things went wrong for him and he caused a crash involving several drivers.

In his new analysis on YouTube Peter Windsor discusses the chaos on the opening lap. "It was all triggered by Bottas making yet another terrible start. What is going on with this guy?"

"He made a terrible start and as a result of that he tries to make up for it by braking ridiculously late on the greasy track on cold intermediates into turn one. And took out Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez and Lando Norris. And also he very nearly took out his teammate Lewis Hamilton."

Windsor continued: "At the end of it, when he got out the car, I thought it was interesting that his message was 'that's it.' It was almost as if, I've had enough."

"You know Valtteri, things are going from bad to worse at the moment. I thought the writing was on the wall when you spun in the pit lane, in Austria. You've got to be thinking now that Mercedes are saying this cannot continue. Imagine if he had taken Lewis out as well", Windsor said. Mercedes has indicated it will provide clarity on Hamilton's teammate in 2022 ahead of the race at Spa.
