    I think many of you are underestimating Bottas, just like Button was supposed to have been dominated by the over-rated one when he moved to McLaren, that didn't happen, and JB more than held his own. In a good car where Bottas isn't having to defend for his life, the quality he showed at times for Williams will come to the fore.

    Don't discount the Honey Badger. I suspect him and Max will have a real battle royale at RB.

    Well Baggie anything can happen, but I suspect Mia's first scenario has a higher degree of probability, even though I don't suspect that Bottas will lose his seat. Ferrari will be third best in 2017, Kimi finishing 5th-7th.

    I wouldn't be shocked if Bottas gives a decent challenge to Lewis, especially since we have some rules changes that will impact the cars. He seems like he is fairly cool dealing with pressure, and considering he has been fighting with a less than great car lately at Williams, has done well. Lewis has really only had to fight with Nico the last couple of years.

    The same applies to car ranking. If Ferrari gets it right, and/or if Mercedes and/or Redbull get it wrong with the rules changes, just about anything can happen in 2017. Kimi, Seb, Max, and Daniel are all capable of winning in the right car IMO. And I think Bottas is as well.

    Just reminding her that maybe he's better than she seems to imply when she says that his only chance is if Seb leaves , Taz .

    It is , with the formula changing , a real possibility that we could see two Finns fighting to finish first , though .

    I can't argue with you regarding the Honey Badger, because Daniel no doubt is right on that top shelf, amongst current F1 drivers. It should be highly entertaining for us fans, to watch Daniel and Max going at it.

    Anything is possible, but I don't see Ferrari being as strong as Merc or even RB. I guess we'll see!

    It looks like a long shot , but even a broken clock is right twice a day .

    I'd like to see a Canadian doing well , actually , Taz man .
    So , I'm hoping that Willy gets it right .

    It should be a good battle between Lance, and Felipe!

    So, has Bottas now proved, that he deserved that drive?
