On Monday, Alfa Romeo announced the signing of a multi-year contract with Valtteri Bottas. One of the first to comment on the news was Lewis Hamilton, the Finnish driver’s partner.
“I am immensely proud to have worked with Valtteri Bottas for the past five years,” Lewis wrote on social media. “Together we were part of a team that won four Constructors’ Cups in a row. We motivated each other during the ups and downs.
He was the best partner I’ve ever worked with. Valtteri, your speed and resilience have always been impressive, but what you really impressed me was that you always remained human. You are better than you think, and I know you have a bright future.
Valtteri, thank you for all your support and amazing contributions to the team. We will miss you. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors, and now let’s complete our cooperation with a high result and bring the team the eighth title. “
