Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas in Austin was overshadowed by his teammate Finn finished only fifth, having made two pit stops.Valtteri Bottas "Today was a hard day for me. In the first third of the race all went well, and the pace was good. However, I couldn't pull off a strategy with one stop because of the constant battles with Sebastian and Kimi. The tires began to wear out quickly, and just wasn't going to go the distance with one stop. I tried everything I could to protect his position, but it was too late, so we're still disappointed with my race, and I need some time to deal with it.However, I am also happy for the victory in the Cup of designers. It's amazing to be part of this championship, we became a team".
