I think the HAM/ROS battles taught them for those HAM prime years, they need a team player #2 driver and not someone who wants it as bad as ROS did. It's no surprise that he won his title and quit.Def shouldn't be anywhere near that bad. I'm just saying it's clear that bottas was treated like a #2 driver even though toto says that's not how mercedes works. I don't think they'll treat Russell the same way, and Hamilton will miss the preferential treatment.
I think George wants it (a world title) as bad as HAM does and as bad as ROS did, so we're going to see more on-track battle and I think the team orders are gonna be harder for RUS to swallow than for BOT. It seems like MB is preparing for their #1 once HAM is done and RUS is it. Gonna be epic to watch (I hope).
