Why Valtteri Bottas will lose his seat 2022?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A big team in F1 wants to have two top-quality drivers. I don’t think both Mercedes drivers are world-class.

Mercedes have won 6 world championships!

One with Nico Rosberg and 5 with Lewis Hamilton. During 2017, 2018, and 2019 season Valtteri Bottas hasn’t been near Lewis Hamilton’s level.

Let’s compare Valtteri Bottas and Nico Rosberg. The former world champion Nico won 9 races in 2016 alone while Valtteri hasn’t won the same amount in all those years.

The truth is he hasn’t been pushing Lewis as Nico Rosberg or Fernando Alonso. Valtteri Bottas is a good driver, but there are a few young Mercedes drivers that want his seat. Like George Russell in the Williams, Esteban Ocon in the Renault, or last year Formula Two winner Nick de Vries but this one is unlikely though he has a Formula E seat right now.

I would let Esteban Ocon be the driver to have the opportunity first. During Esteban 2019 season, he spent time in Brackley as the third driver of Mercedes. He went and drove in the simulator and learned some information about the track. While George Russell only has spent two years in a Williams car and doesn’t have experience in a front car. But with Williams and Renault (Alpine for the 2021 season). Those cars might fight for a podium next season which could change the driver’s mind.

The driver’s future is dependent on what’s happening in the next season.

I don’t think Valtteri Bottas will be dropped from Formula One because he is still a good driver. But I think he could do a job in these teams:

Renault (Alpine after the 2020 season)

In Renault, he would be teaming up with Fernando Alonso and taking Esteban Ocon’s drive. Fernando and Valtteri would be a good team up in the Alpine because both know how it feels to be top car so their knowledge would be a positive thing for Alpine in the 2022 season.


Right now Williams is on an uphill point in their career they are improving but still not a top team like they once were.

With new investors and more money, I could see the team become a settled midfield team in the 2021 season.

And if Vallteri takes Georges’s seat Williams to have an opportunity to teach the second driver to become a phenomenal driver.

Racing Point (Aston Martin after the 2020 season)

Mercedes and Racing Point are partners in the Formula One world right now.

What is gonna happen after Racing Point is becoming Aston Martin?

They might be a single-car racing team like Renault is right now. And with Sergio Perez leaving Racing Point no one knows what the future holds!

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let's hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win. Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn't the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy...

Benny Leonard: Always A Champion

If you sat down with a group of boxing fans under the age of say, 50, and began to talk about whether Benny Leonard really is a Top-10 all-time fighter, you'd probably have a cacophony of voices barking at you about how great "Sugar" Ray really was. Tell them you were talking about Benny Leonard though, and you might hear a lot of "Who's that?" from the same group. But Benny Leonard most definitely belongs...

IPL Talking Points

Russell Wilson Is An All-Time Great QB
