Valtteri Bottas Wins Japan Grand Prix

October 16, 2019 by

Valtteri Bottas claimed first place at the Japanese Grand Prix as fellow teammate Lewis Hamilton finished in third place behind Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. The win means that Mercedes has secured a record sixth straight World Championship double for this season. The result has also sealed the Constructors’ title with just four races left to go, and while Hamilton hasn’t been announced as the champion just yet, Bottas is the only other driver that can catch up to him.

It also sees a record broken that was originally set by Michael Schumacher and Ferrari between 2000 and 2004, confirming that this current Mercedes team is the best that the F1 has ever season. British Hamilton is currently leading Bottas by 64 points, and needs to be 78 clear of the Finnish driver in order to claim his sixth drivers’ title at the next race, which is set to take place in Mexico.

Team boss of Mercedes Toto Wolff stated that it had never been done before, which is why it feels great. He added that he doesn’t know if it’s historic as there are more important things out there, but it feels great for them. Mercedes’ latest win is another major blow to Ferrari, who managed to turn a frown row locked out, with Vettel on pole ahead of team mate Charles Leclerc, into second and sixth place

And like their previous races, their performance was marred with a number of driving errors from both drivers this time.
