Nico Rosberg takes a swipe at Lewis Hamilton calling Valtteri Bottas his ‘best team-mate’ in F1 by claiming the Finnish driver is ‘super useful’ because he ‘never beat’ the seven-time champion

Lewis Hamilton called Valtteri Bottas his ‘best team-mate’ because he ‘never beat’ him and was ‘super useful’ to his championship wins, according to Nico Rosberg. Rosberg knows exactly what it’s like to race as a team-mate of Hamilton’s at Mercedes, having edged out the Briton to the title in 2016 before retiring. Bottas has never truly found himself pushing Hamilton all the way since he took the seat at Mercedes in 2017. Bottas was promoted from Williams to replace Rosberg in 2017 following the German’s shock decision to retire after winning the title. Rosberg is now a pundit for Sky Sports F1 but his relationship with Hamilton remains fractious following a fierce battle for supremacy at Mercedes.
