    Bottas secured the spot to keep Hamilton and Mercedes happy. They don't want a Rosberg/Hamilton battle situation with Russell in 2021. Allowing Bottas to secure 2nd ahead of Hamilton was a way for them to justify keeping Bottas and a way to secure 2nd in the driver's championship for him. I feel if they let Hamilton pass him, it would have allowed him to come under threat from behind; they of course did not want that to happen. So they used Hamilton to assist in controlling the top 3 and secure bottas for 2021 and justify their contracts to more or less secure an 8th consecutive for Hamilton next year. Hamilton is likely holding off on signing probably due in part to the uncertainty of who is teammate would be as he doesn't want to continue unless he knows he can secure #1 next year. It seems he allowed Bottas to win this week as he knows 9/10 he can beat him and more or less, guarantee the #1 standing next year for the championship. With a new teammate, that of course would come under threat.

    Drivers swap cars every race. We find out who the best car and the best driver is at the end of the season. Russel showed last week how someone from the back can do when in the right machine. Racing would be amazing and the best car manufacturer would still win. But by swapping drivers every race, we would find out who the best of them all really is.

    If RedBull don't swap Albon then they just don't have the management it takes to win a championship anymore. They need two beasts behind the wheel if they want a chance at beating silver arrows. Albon is fighting with the renaults...
