With Mercedes still undecided on who will drive alongside Lewis Hamilton in 2022, the Briton again backs Valtteri Bottas as his best team-mate ever.
“Knowing my relationship with Valtteri makes him a great team-mate, I’ve always said that,” Hamilton told motorsport-total.com.
“And to be honest, I feel like that we currently have the pairing that delivers best when it comes to balance in the team and the knowledge of how we can develop our car.
“At some point, that will change. I won’t be here forever, and neither will Valtteri. But for now, I think we have done well over the years and can do that we will continue to do so.

“People have to leave him alone sometimes so that he can concentrate on his work.”
The seven-time champion goes on to say that their relationship will only get better.
“We will continue to work together as a team, as we have done for many years. I have always said that, overall, Valtteri is the best team-mate I have ever had.
“And when I say that, I mean not only the performance but also the morale in the team and how we work together in the environment.
“We will continue to try to improve our communication and hopefully, we will master such things even better in the future,” Lewis concluded.
