Wolff was clear it was unlikely Mercedes could go as far as appointing a clear number one before the start of a race, describing a suggestion of giving priority to the driver on pole as "too harsh" and "the opposite of what we have done through the years".
And while all this unfolded in an exciting third grand prix of the season, Rosberg was doing exactly what he meant to do after retiring from the sport, with the reigning world champion taking in the action from the comfort of his own sofa.
Drafted in from Williams as an emergency replacement, the arrival of Bottas quashed rumours that a more successful driver would be hired. "That was why we couldn't win as a team and I couldn't defend the position", Bottas said. Firstly when the German, starting third on the grid, blasted out of his blocks and made up the nine-metre difference to Hamilton by the time the title protagonists reached turn one.
Hamilton has praised Bottas constantly since he arrived, even calling him a "gentleman" for agreeing to let him past in Bahrain.

Instead, United's lower profits are likely because of a 28.1% increase in fuel costs and a 6.9% increase in labor costs. Munoz said that the response to a letter that the CEO sent to a group of United's "most loyal customers" was positive.
Bottas was disappointed but said the team directives made sense.
"We all had more or less the same start and Lewis stuck with Valtteri (Bottas) so I could take a risk under braking and get the move done". I felt right from the beginning that we had the speed to win today.
Then Ferrari blinked first and pitted Vettel with Bottas, who led the opening phase of the race, slowing up the chasing pack.
"Yeah, it's small percentages now, which I think is what racing should be about". Hamilton lost a position to Vettel at the start, but his race really started to unravel when he received a five-second penalty for holding up Daniel Ricciardo in the pit lane under the Safety Car. Him running third, what could've been or what his pace would have been we don't know. And it is always nice to see good things happen to good people.

The government heavily subsidises imports of basic food products such as flour via an artificially high exchange rate. Maduro this week said he was dramatically expanding civilian militias created by Chavez and giving each member a gun.
Indeed, Mercedes' Toto Wolff thinks the silver and red cars are closely matched for ultimate pace. "We haven't done it in the last years or have tried to avoid it as good as we can".
"We finally have a competitive vehicle to count on and it is important to recognise the speed with which we implemented the developments demanded for each new race".
"Three-hundred meters behind me and they overtake me on the straight", Alonso told his team over the radio midway through the race. We owe it to them.
However, as his later sets of tyres were pressured correctly, Bottas is unsure why the rest of his race was so hard.
