Although Lewis Hamilton won most of the world media attention when he won the sixth world title, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff points out that Valtteri Bottas played an important role in this year's silver arrow success.
After a great start to this year, Bottas lost his team-mate second half of the season, with good results preventing rivals from getting closer to Hamilton.
Finch's role in the new Hamilton and Mercedes title is also recalled by team boss Toto Wolff:
“Valtteri is a great team player, though he might not want to hear it himself. Despite being one of the best racers in history, his teammate does a great job. His role in the team is extremely important and Valtteri has earned a great deal of credit for our success in recent years. ”
