• F1 2017 - Bad blood already brewing at Mercedes between Hamilton and Bottas?

      There is a war of words already going on between Mercedes-AMG's Formula 1 drivers. It was kicked off by Lewis Hamilton's father who stated that being teammates with Lewis is potentially 'career ending' and that the teammate should make other plans for the future.

      Seriously, here's the statement:

      I personally think, while he's getting older and more mature, he's still actually heading towards the prime of his career. So Lewis is going to be a force to be reckoned with this year.
      The dad is being supportive as a good dad should be but he is also saying Hamilton will end the career of newly signed Bottas as he will not be able to compete with his son.

      For his part, Valtteri Bottas had a pretty good response:

      Oh, and this:

      The season starts March 26th in Australia.
