Valtteri Bottas has confirmed that he will work with team orders given to him by Mercedes if needed.

Why it matters: Team orders could help Lewis Hamilton in his fight against Max Verstappen for the championship.

What he had to say:

  • “We have discussed many things internally, including different scenarios.”
  • “Every race is always different. There could be times that we need to play as a team and i need to take one for the team.”
  • “At this situation, how the situation is, yes, I would do it, because we’re here as a team and really need to make sure that we win both titles, not only the Constructors’, but also the Drivers'”
  • “At the moment, Lewis has the greater chance for that, so that’s the situation now at the moment.”
