Lewis Hamilton names Valtteri Bottas as his ‘best team-mate’ and thanks the Finnish driver for his contribution to Mercedes after the news of his multi-year deal Alfa Romeo is confirmed

Lewis Hamilton has shared a touching tribute to Valtteri Bottas after it was confirmed that he would be leaving Mercedes to join Alfa Romeo next season. Hamilton has since taken to social media to thank Bottas for his ‘contribution’ to Mercedes and even referred to him as his ‘best team-mate’. Bottas joined Mercedes from Williams in 2017 following the shock retirement of Nico Rosberg. As a result, Hamilton has called Bottas his best teammate – putting him above the likes of Fernando Alonso, Heikki Kovalainen, Jenson Button and Nico Rosberg. Bottas has also achieved nine Grand Prix wins during his time at Mercedes.
