in Monza, Sochi and Istanbul, Mercedes seemed to have the upper hand over Red Bull. Hold the bulls previously mostly as a favorite, Mercedes could turn the leaf and is also slightly favored in Austin in the weekend. This is not due to a large update, as Valtteri Bottas emphasizes.

"I do not think we have taken great steps as a team," he says. "We have finished the development at the car pretty early, so it was quite similar in the past races."

Nevertheless, the Finn feels a significant improvement in the car compared to the spring and summer: "It feels much better," he confirms. Mercedes, especially at the beginning of the season, still had great problems with an unstable tail and just lacking grip - a consequence of the rule changes to the underbody before the season.

It will arrive in the Mercedes-AMG has just revealed the first in its new product lineup of E Performance plug-in-hybrids. It’s called the GT63 S E Performance.

"Meanwhile, it's a bit more stable and mobile," says Bottas and makes this especially for detailed work on the set-up and the balance. "We are still learning more about the package. But there are only small differences. It is not that we lie miles in front of everyone else."

In addition, he says that in the fight against Red Bull also much depends on the route. Monza and Sochi were considered Mercedes routes, but also in Turkey was last strong. And in Austin, where the Formula 1 is guesting this weekend, you have won each race until 2018 since the beginning of the turbo.

Bottas expects in the US but another weekend as in Turkey, where he could win his first season's race. Reason are for him especially the soil waves while it was pretty much in Istanbul. "This requires other characteristics from the car. And the asphalt is completely different. Here there is a much more open asphalt, therefore there is probably less grip."

on the routes thereafter, Mexico and Brazil, but rather red bull as a favorite: "We know that Mexico is a weakness of us," says Bottas. "The height has always taken a lot of Powerunit, but we have been able to improve ourselves since then. I would say that we will be better positioned than in recent years."

"But on the paper, this is still strong routes for Red Bull. We just have to draw our teachings from previous years and prepare for the best possible way," says Bottas. "The weekends will not be easy, but it's never in this sport."
