Valtteri Bottas will not look to emulate Nico Rosberg’s tactics as he seeks to beat Lewis Hamilton to the 2021 Formula 1 world championship. https://www.grandprix247.com/2021/01/15/bottas-im-not-a-nico-rosberg/ “However, looking ahead to the new campaign, Bottas said that he would continue to work in the best interests of the team rather than solely focusing on beating the seven-time world champion, who is yet to agree to a new contract.” This explains why Mercedes is keeping Bottas and do not wish to replace him with Russell. Bottas is a team player. Sorry for the detractors who would like the Mercedes team to tear itself apart with Russell coming to challenge strongly Hamilton. The fact is that Mercedes is in F1 to get results, not to entertain.
