2018 team mates battles: Hamilton vs Bottas at Mercedes | 2018 F1 season review

Had it not been for this, and further misfortunes in France and Austria, Bottas might have been in a more competitive position in the second half of the season, and therefore avoided having to hand Hamilton victory in Russia.
Bottas put up a respectable showing in qualifying until mid-season, but Hamilton held sway thereafter.
It was a relief to see Hamilton did not patronise his team mate by attempting to hand a win back for Sochi.
With Esteban Ocon on the market for 2020, Bottas will head into another season at Mercedes needing to prove himself anew alongside the best in the business if he is to keep his F1 seat.
