Bottas back to work with Mercedes seat fitting

Valtteri Bottas is back for a fifth season with Mercedes as he looks to add to his tally of nine victories with the team. Mercedes have released footage of his final seat fitting ahead of the new campaign.

Valtteri Bottas is ready to get back to work with Mercedes with the team releasing footage of the Finn's return to the factory for his final seat fitting ahead of the 2021 season.

The Finn finished behind Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' standings for the second season in a row last time out, though the gap between the two was 124 points. As a result Bottas will likely have one goal in mind heading into the new campaign: closing the gap to his teammate in order to push for a world title.

Here's a look at Bottas and Mercedes as they prepare for the new season, with the Finn taking part in his final seat fitting.
