Wolff: Hamilton and Bottas show that you can have two alpha males on a team

Ante Vetma

Toto Wolff says that the Mercedes driver duo is proof that there can be two "alpha males" in a team, and that they can function together.

Recall, Bottas has again received a one-year contract and will be with Mercedes in 2021, and enough has already been written about Lewis Hamilton's contract, while the conclusion is still the same - Wolff and Hamilton are waiting for the right moment for a formal signature.

"If you have such dynamics between two drivers that the whole conversation takes place on the track - then it's possible to have two alpha males on the team."

"Valtteri showed some really good performances this year, but then he fell in shape at the end of the season."

“This combination works well. When Lewis has a bad day - Valtteri pulls out that weekend, and vice versa. Valtteri had a really bad day in Turkey and Lewis won the race. I think this combination works really well for the team. ”

Bottas is currently in second place in the driver’s standings and three races before the end has 27 points more than Max Verstappen. This season Mercedes has not only won the 70th anniversary Grand Prix and the Italian Grand Prix.

    Blood fucks you… One breaks and starts shivering in his knees as soon as he sees Lewis in the garage and replies to all messages with a "copy" and the other is the embodiment of a modern α male mu
    Test this man on anything, surely the result is positive.

    I've been thinking for a few minutes about how to formulate a sentence without being polite, but it's not working!

    It is a mystery to me how some serious-faced journalists listen to him as he runs this kind of nonsense and then publish it without asking him who is giving him LSD. I think this is such nonsense that it is rude to viewers / readers…

      Exclusive buddy! Maybe not a bombastic one, but some journalists are just here to make a story, while Totto's story in their head is just "blah blah blah", all this is recorded nicely by the intercom and then it is typed and published.

      And let's be realistic, everyone in Mercedes knows who the "alpha male" is, but after a good "wingman", if he didn't give him the epithet "alpha", it would be just writing about Bottas. These are just words that mean nothing, Totto publicly praises both drivers, while in the office it is known "who cuts hair and who carries water".

    Honestly, I have no idea who would characterize him as an Alpha male on the current grid, in principle, there is no real one

    But if he had to work on a top list, the only thing that is 100% ziher is that Bottas is without any dilemma at the bottom of that list.
    Basically the only one I even remember being worse than him in that regard is Rubens…

    But he didn’t say Bottas was the second alpha.

    He said that if you have two alphas it can work.

    And then around Bottas - he had a good blah blah performance.

        First, he has a figure in the contract one 10 times smaller than Lewis.
        Secondly, as far as I remember he received the message ‘Valtteri it’s James nekoliko’ several times which he listened to (Russia Singapoore
        I don't know the years by heart). The last one addressed to Lewis was in Abu Dhabi in 2016 and he didn’t listen to her.
        Third, see first.

    • I don't want to dig, but the situation was a million like races where Hamilton got the color of strategy, where Bottas was told to miss Hamilton and vice versa never and even when Bottas was fast, then races like Russia where Lewis was given a victory and did not fight back also. There were situations like when Bottas was left outside to rate Vetel, if I’m not mistaken 2017, or 2018 Spanish GP. The situation since the beginning of this season when it turned out that Bottas did not .ogao use the strongest engine mode, etc.
      Of course I understand Mercedes' attitude. Lewis is for Bottas above the class and pushes him to the maximum. But talking about two alpha males in the team is totally stupid because in order to be called an alpha male, Bottas first has to have balls and he doesn't. He gets out of the way and just bows his head and says, ok coppy. Maybe he has the same status (which I sincerely doubt) but that has nothing to do with alpha males at all. Even Hamilton would not be any alpha male for me but a cry. Probably in his youth, all the living teased him and called him a jerk. The alpha male should first have the character to be called that and, in my opinion, his physical predispositions, and none of them have that on the grid. They are all dwarfs, short in stature and with little body mass. Any cast exceptions but that's the way it is. If we are going to look at drivers as alpha males who know how to stand up for themselves, show their teeth, etc., Bottas definitely does not belong there.

      @Petar AMG I agree with you. Let all these connoisseurs count for themselves how many times Bottas has beaten Lewis in free practice. Hamilton isn't even up to his knees. Only, he won a few more races, but it's all insignificant with how much difference he broke Lewis in freestyle

  17. Sometimes I get the impression when I read statements like this that I am watching the "wrong" sport. In terms of "alpha males" in F1 Bottas is one of the starlets. He should be asked why then they don't give a chance to Hamilton, one Alonso, Vettel or Max to see how this Alpha male can with other alphas in sports.

        • Zahe ... it's McLaren himself. Alonso drove well and if RD had not registered at the Hungarian 2007 he would have been the champion of that year Alonso. Had they had equal treatment Alonao would have easily come up with the title. This is how he got the penalty because his team reported him and he started lower than on p1 and the title went by. It is interesting how everyone scolds Alonso for that 2007 and rarely does anyone mention the rookie he did as a double champion to the same Hungarian. In a quick lap he went to disturb Alonso. What would you say here if Leclerc Vettel did that last year? What would you say if Russell comes to Mercedes and does that to Hamilton? Alonso was on that team alone against everyone and then he took advantage of the situation and told them not to tell them what was in the spy gate affair and let it be. They deserved it. They were left without a title due to their incompetence and without 100 millionaires. And we make fun of Ferrari. These end of the dominant car are left without both titles and without money para.

        • Days so RD didn’t report Hamilton who caused the incident on the track but Alonso. Why didn't he report Lewis if they had the same plans with both of them? The explanation is simple. The Briton in the British team proved to be competitive with Alonso. Epic turned to her boyfriend regardless of the consequences. This is proof that Alonso will be punished until Lewis, and he himself stated on Alonso's return to McLaren that Alonso never did anything controversial and that he fought against everyone alone. That is the only truth. So when we see how much of an advantage someone can have over another driver when you get the favor of a team like Leclerc, ask yourself how Alonso had to drive to be in the title game until the end.

    Toto is just raising dust, it is known who the main figure in Mecca is, and Bottas is only there to be an aquifer, I liked him better while he was in Williams, with his move to Merc as if he reconciled himself to fate and his status as another (and obedient) driver.
