In the round-up: Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff sympathises with Valtteri Bottas over his run of bad luck.
What they say
Bottas suffered two punctures during the Bahrain Grand Prix on his way to eighth place.
Valtteri has had bad luck in his season that almost comes close to freak events. Multiple punctures that shouldn’t have happened, red flags when he was easily in the lead. And if I didn’t know that he has an absolutely strong mental constitution, a driver could start to question why that was happening to only one guy.
But not Valtteri. He is so strong, so robust and resilient that it’s only going to make him stronger. But I feel sorry for him picking up all those problems in a single season when he could have won three or four or five races more, being a solid second at least. This is difficult.

On a day like today, I am thankful to be working with Ian, and to be standing on the shoulders of giants like Charlie and Sid.
So happy that Romain is well. It makes all the preparation (and sitting around!) worthwhile for those 30 short seconds. @f1 can be proud today
