Lauda: Bottas as fast as Rosberg

Alyssa BaileyJan 18, 2017

Pascal Wehrlein may not have surfaced at Mercedes, though it was the announcement of his destination for the upcoming season which confirmed the identity of the individual tasked with replacing the retired and reigning World Champion, Nico Rosberg, in 2017.

Bottas, who made his grand prix debut with Williams in 2013, has not won a race in F1, while Briton Hamilton is a 53-time race victor and three-time world champion. Just as the rumors predicted, the team has chosen Williams driver Valtteri Bottas to race alongside Lewis Hamilton next season.

"The team has won many (titles), I haven't won any and I'm sure we share the same target".

Bottas was formally unveiled as Hamilton's new Mercedes teammate on Monday (Tuesday AEDT), almost seven weeks after Rosberg rocked the sporting world with his decision to retire as champion.

"The support from my fans over the last few weeks has been a huge boost and I'm grateful for that".

"I don't know him that well yet but I'm looking forward to getting to know him better", he told Sky Sports television after being introduced to factory staff. However, by the fourth quarter of past year, Mercedes already contacted Williams about Bottas transferring to the 2017 F1 Mercedes team by 2017, reported Motor Sport. "Felipe has always been a much-loved member of the Williams family, and having the opportunity to work with him again is something we all look forward to", said Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal of Williams Martini Racing. The Brazilian has agreed to a one-year deal and will race alongside F1 debutant Lance Stroll.

"I would not have returned for any other team".
