Bottas: “I’m better than Hamilton”

Driver Valtteri Bottas believes he has better skills than his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

“I have to believe myself better than Hamilton and of course, when I get to my best, I know I can beat him,” Bottas told Sky Sports.

Bottas won the opening leg of the season – the Austrian Grand Prix. But the Finnish driver was once again behind in the race with Hamilton. By the time of the Portuguese Grand Prix on October 25, Hamilton was 69 points ahead of Bottas and had a great chance of equalizing Michael Schumacher’s record of seven F1 championships.

“Obviously, there are days when Hamilton got better. Over the last few years, when we were teammates, in general, he played better,” Bottas continued.

Hamilton won the F1 championship in the last six seasons. He is considered the main driver of Mercedes – the team has dominated the race for many years thanks to great advances in engines. Along with playing, Hamilton is known for being interested in social issues. Typically when he voiced his support for the Black Lives Matter campaign to fight for the rights of people.

Unlike teammates, Bottas only wanted to focus on expertise. “I don’t do politics. I just love racing. I like fair but challenging races, and will continue to pursue that,” he said.

The 31-year-old rider is pleased with his performance in the 2020 season, despite having won two wins from Hamilton’s first-place seven.

“My pace on the track is really good, outperforming previous years. I think, overall, my performance is positive,” Bottas said.

“As an athlete, when you do not meet your goals for a long time, the more frustration will build up in you. People are always judging even if they don’t understand you. Nobody knows what’s going on in mind. So, it is absurd to judge others based on what they see from the outside,” continued the Finnish driver.

F1 racing: Financial difficulties and prospects are worse than coming (Part 2)

This annual organization fee is paid (advance), so it raises the question of whether they will be refunded (currently Australia only), or if F1 can keep it as an account for the 2021 season probably will be unlikely because it is related to the financial issue of the deposit. 

The loss of organizing fees was the result of the cancellation of the race, which in turn led to major revenue sources.

First of all, there are sponsors and advertising, no race takes place, no money.

Secondly, the units purchased television packages on a season-wide package, and when the number of races was cut, agreements with advertisers and their service users were governed. For example, in the UK, many fans spend money to buy packages of Sky cable television system, to fully monitor the happenings of F1. Therefore, they have no other reason to buy a television package when an event takes place. Since then, the advertising units do not want to spend too much money in exchange for 30 seconds to appear on TV.

1. This will be Ferrari’s year

Since 2007, Scuderia Ferrari has proven that they have a car that is capable of winning the title. However, the lack of tactical thinking of the team and the unstable performance of the riders through each stage has led to the championship. The enemy continuously slipped from their hands. The 2019 SF90 is a near-perfect version, proving that the power is hard to beat in some races near the end of the season, but there are still some weaknesses to be overcome. Ferrari’s technical development team will surely learn from those mistakes and make new strides for any future car race in 2020.

Albon’s speed and determination have already been recognized, but he still needs to get his Red Bull into the top 3 and win podium – a mission at his fingertips.

4. Will Ferrari sign Ricciardo in 2021?

With a high possibility, Daniel Ricciardo is another candidate for the official position at Ferrari. The time at Renault after leaving the Red Bull of the Australian driver was not easy. With the transfer situation for 2021 getting hotter, he will become a sought-after name if he opts for parting with Renault when The contract expires at the end of this year.

He has shown his ability through impressive victories and recognizable running style. He is also one of the most capable riders in the tournament. So, he (originally from Italy) is a suitable name combined with the youth of Charles Leclerc to create a new “dynasty” for Ferrari, similar to what Michael Schumacher has won. Ricciardo or Hamilton? Let’s wait for his decision in the second half of this year.
