Bottas won 10 Grands Prix in five years alongside Lewis Hamilton, and helped the Silver Arrows to all five constructors' titles in that timespan. He often beat the most successful qualifier in F1 history, and on his day was untouchable.
But those days became harder to channel as the tsunami of Hamilton's statistics bore down, and he almost seemed relieved to start a new chapter with Alfa Romeo for 2022 and beyond, finally having a multi-year contract in his pocket at age 32 for phase three of his career.
