Mercedes apologises after Bottas covid joke

Mercedes has apologised to Chinese fans after Valtteri Bottas made a joke about coronavirus following last Sunday’s grand prix in Istanbul. “Last Sunday, Valtteri had a tough and disappointing race, in which he lost the world title. “He didn’t intend to offend anyone in front of the TV cameras straight after the race, and certainly meant no disrespect to China and Chinese fans. “He still is the Valtteri we all know, he cares about every fan in China as much as we do, wishes each of you the best and to stay safe in such a difficult time,” Mercedes added.
