From the BBC sports website:
Mercedes F1 non-executive chairman Niki Lauda says the team's new driver Valtteri Bottas is "at least as good as" 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg. Lauda adds that Mercedes "do not mourn" the team's loss of Rosberg. (Sports Bild, via F1i.com)

They're hardly likely to say their new driver is rubbish, but the best they could get at short notice though are they?

I think he'll do well, win the odd race but will be amazed (though very pleased) if he finishes above Hamilton.

I hope Seb or Kimi wins the title with Bottas third.

Neither do I, but what kind of fan goes to a match and hopes his team lose?

I hope Daniel Ricciardo will take the title next year but I hope it is tighter with more teams getting a win.  It would be good to see the silver cars on the back foot, not because I have a problem with the team that has done the best job, just for a change of pace.  Not sure if I would like to see Jensen back in 18 but if he is, I hope he does himself justice.
