It’s a sixth double championship for Mercedes!

Mercedes have won yet another constructor’s title making it six-in-a-row, as Valtteri Bottas finished victorious at the Japanese Grand Prix.

It was a slow start from pole...

Valtteri Bottas, take a bow!

A dominant Valtteri Bottas victory from lap one quickly erased 2018 doubts, as Mercedes claimed a one-two, at the Australian Grand Prix, in Melbourne. This triumph was then added with a bonus point for claiming the DHL Fastest Lap. Despite starting the race in second behind team-mate Lewis Hamilton, Bottas swiftly overtook the Brit into turn one, forcing the reigning champion to think about the chasing pack with his Mercedes...
