Valtteri Bottas believes that Red Bull Racing have the advantage over Mercedes ahead of the Qatar Grand Prix.


  • Bottas admits that Red Bull have regularly performed better than Mercedes in 2021.
  • The Finn assures that Mercedes are still set to give a fight.

What he had to say:

  • “For now, I would say, overall, if I look at the season, Red Bull has had a bit of an upper hand all season. There’s been races we’ve performed well, but on average, they’ve been better.”
  • “I think the mindset we have as a team is that we’re again the underdogs going into this weekend.”
  • “They’ve performed pretty much better than us for most of the year, but still it’s so close in the points and we’re leading the championship, so we’ve still been able to battle with them.”
  • “We’ll keep fighting and keep doing what we’re doing, and hopefully we can be strong.”
