Valtteri Bottas is coping well with a difficult end to his 2018 campaign.

That is the news from Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff, after the Sochi-Suzuka double header in which Finn Bottas was clearly playing the 'number 2' role in support of runaway championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

'Valtteri is a great guy'

Some have suggested Mercedes may try to 'pay back' Bottas for his support in the closing stages of the calendar.

When asked if that is a plan, Wolff said: "No.

"Valtteri is a great guy. After the race at Sochi, he said 'There is no need to discuss anything and if I was you, I would do the same'.

"He said 'I understand that I need to perform better from the very beginning of the season in order to really go for the title, and I did not'," Wolff said in Japan.
