Valtteri Bottas took a trip down memory lane as he bid farewell to five title-winning Mercedes cars, as he officially leaves the Brackley-based squad.

Bottas, who will join Alfa Romeo next year, helped Mercedes continue their remarkable success in F1's turbo-hybrid era, winning the Constructors' Championship in each of the five seasons he was at the team.

Along the way, he picked up 10 wins, 20 pole positions and 58 podiums from 101 events.

Bottas will be replaced by George Russell, who will become Lewis Hamilton's new teammate, having signed a multi-year contract to join Alfa Romeo for 2022 and beyond.
