Former Bottas sponsor guarded on 'F*** you' message
Valtteri Bottas' former long-time sponsor is not commenting on whether he thinks the Mercedes driver's post-win comments were specifically addressed to him in Australia. Right after winning the 2019 season opener in Melbourne, Bottas went on the radio and said: "To whom it may concern, f*** you."
The Finn admitted it was an unplanned outburst following months of criticism of his driving in 2018.
