Bottas feels 'more at one' with Mercedes vehicle

Bottas feels 'more at one' with Mercedes vehicle

"At the end of my career if I didn't win a championship but I was still very competitive and was always up there and tried to extract the best out of myself, I can be happy with that as well".

"For me it's all about focusing on the race and getting the maximum out of it".

The Briton seemed genuinely pleased for the Finn, who arrived in January to replace now-retired world champion Nico Rosberg.

Vettel and Hamilton jointly lead the championship with 43 points each.

Hamilton now shares the leadership in the drivers' title race with four-time champion Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari, who qualified third behind the two Mercedes men. But it is really involved with how good the vehicle is - I am 100% sure that if I had the same auto as Lewis and Seb for sure I would be challenging them really hard. It was the sixth consecutive year in Bahrain that Mercedes won pole.

Instead, Felipe Massa put his Williams fastest with a 1m32.801s, only to be relegated to second by soft-shod Verstappen. We're both doing that, and that's a great place to be. The air temperature was down to 29 degrees Celsius and the track 31, down by six and eight degrees respectively compared to the earlier free practice session.

In Q2, Indy 500-bound two-time champion Fernando Alonso took it easy. Red Bull's Max Verstappen was third in that, Hamilton 10th, and Bottas 14th.

After another Honda power-unit failure, he decided not to bother at all and was unzipping his overalls without seeking a place in the top ten shootout. He did the better job, so hats off to him.
