Valtteri Bottas has always been one to watch in the world of Formula One but never really seemed to have the machinery underneath him to get the job done. Everyone in the paddock is convinced he is destined for bigger things and now that he has made the move to Mercedes to replace the retiring Nico Rosberg, we may finally get to see the young Finn on the top stop of the podium. Once he has that first win under his belt, who knows what may follow, but one thing’s for sure, he will be giving Lewis Hamilton a run for his money.
