Hamilton hails new Mercedes team-mate

Lewis Hamilton says new team-mate Valtteri Bottas has "settled in really well" at Mercedes.

The Silver Arrows brought Bottas in from Williams following Nico Rosberg's retirement after claiming the Drivers' Championship last season.

Hamilton and Rosberg clashed frequently during their time as team-mates but the British star seems to be expecting a better working relationship with Bottas ahead of the season opener in Australia.

“It's been great so far,” Hamilton said, as reported by Crash.net. “Valtteri seems to have settled really well into the team. He's given great feedback, he's working hard with his engineers to get up to date. He's very forthcoming with the information from the car, so the engineers in the team can move forward.”

When asked about early comparisons to Rosberg, he added: “I think we're working at full capacity in terms of how we're developing. Nothing is being held back which is fantastic.”
