(cafetheology.org) – The conditions at Mercedes are at the latest after the big price of Italy straight. Lewis Hamilton has not only taken the world championship, he is now also 41 in front of his team colleague Valtteri Bottas. Officially, the silver arrows have not yet been pronounced, but the bigger the retinue of the Finn, the more likely it is that he must play the watershed for Hamilton in the final phase of the season. While Ferrari already clearly set itself on Sebastian Vettel as the number one , Mercedes continues to emphasize the equal opportunities of both drivers.

He then started a catch-up, but when he got second, Hamilton was too far away. He explained that there was not a big difference between his Pace and his team colleague, but one can assume that the Briton at the top managed the lead in the first place. Toto Wolff speaks of a "fantastic second place" and praises Bottas for his catching up. To his future, Bottas does not have to worry any more. "I can say he's going to be with us next year," says Niki Lauda at RTL. "Toto just needs to put it all together and calculate it, then it's going to be a board-approval "It is clear now, however, that it will not be easier for him against Hamilton in 2018 …
