Despite Valtteri Bottas' failure to beat his teammate Lewis Hamilton in the last three years since the Mercedes race, Finn is pleased to be able to learn from “the best of the best.”
Although Bottas admits he would like to see even better results, he is convinced that he is making progress from season to season, even thanks to Lewis Hamilton:
“Of course I wish I had more wins, but I think I have improved significantly in both the qualifications and the races themselves. I feel – and the fact is, I'm still making progress. I'm always striving for it, and I'll try to make you better next season, ”Bottas told F1 Racing.
“In the last three years, I have learned a lot and I am still learning. I think being part of such a great team is an opportunity that every driver wants to get, as it allows you to get to the next level by working hard, working with the team and using all the tools you have available. Every racer has their way, but it would be foolish not to try to learn from a teammate, especially if it was Lewis Hamilton. I always take the opportunity to see something he does, be it driving or tuning or something. I'm glad he's very open about these things. It's very good to have him as a teammate. “
