Valtteri Bottas had had an impressive weekend as he took third place at Monza on Sunday after starting from P19.

Why it matters: The Finn had a grid penalty for a power unit change but fought his way onto the podium. 

Details:

  • Bottas had little to say about the incident between Hamilton and Verstappen, but admitted that Mercedes could have made up a lot of points on Red Bull.

What he had to say:

Starting from the back is never easy. I told the team I was gonna be on the podium today and I did, so I’m glad we got more points than Red Bull. Obviously, a shame with the crash from Lewis, we lost points there, but from my side it was great, good fun.
