Andrew Shovlin has revealed Mercedes’ opinion regarding Valtteri Bottas’ performance in the final stretch of the 2021 F1 season.

Details:

  • Shovlin believes that securing a long-term future in F1 has helped Bottas.
  • The Mercedes trackside engineering director thinks that Bottas enjoys driving the Mercedes car at the moment.

What he had to say:

  • “Valtteri has always had a lot of a lot of speed there,” Shovlin told Sky Sports.
  • “I think as he said, knowing what his future is, having a long-term contract has been quite a big thing. He’s just driving because he loves driving and the car’s working well, and he’s having a lot of fun out there, so we’ve not seen Valtteri as relaxed as he is now.”
  • “And he’s doing a brilliant job for us, so we’re happy.”
