The pilot of the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas was surprised at how his teammate Lewis Hamilton.

The British, recall, this season won his fourth championship title.

When I moved to the “Mercedes”, didn’t know Lewis – quotes F1i Bottas. – Had no idea what he is in life. He knew only that he was a good pilot.

He confirmed his level. Besides, I knew him as a cool guy, an ordinary man.

We had a mutual respect. I always knew he’s a great talent, but did not think that he works so hard.
