A vindictive appearance that had surprised Bottas. But after a fourth win this season in Austin, he resumed his formulation, initially "to whom it may concern, fuck you", and turned the end into "thank you".
"To those who feel concerned … thank you!" said the Finn at the party at Mercedes, to change his tone and greet the engineers as those who supported him.
"I do not have a word to describe my pride in being part of this incredible team, and to say how grateful I am for the work each of you is doing to make this happen. work, involvement and sacrifices made to make it happen, thank you! "
Indeed, Mercedes has secured his second title this season in Austin, with the coronation of Lewis Hamilton, and Bottas also assured his place as runner-up in the standings. The team had already won its sixth constructors title, the third in which Bottas participated, a few weeks earlier.
"It's amazing to be part of the team that won the constructors title Let me repeat one thing I said last year: let's do it again next year, I know we can do it Congratulations to Lewis too, for his title drivers, and it will not be easy next year. "
