Which Number 2 would you chose?

You're a number 1 driver, the star of the sport and the power you hold within your team is absolute. You have been given the opportunity to hire your team mate.

Who do you chose?

Are you looking for a type or a name?

I'd look for someone good enough to take points from the others and also not give me too much trouble. I would welcome some competition of course, something to keep me on my toes every now and again.

Someone like Rubens, Webber, Ralf or Bottas!

Alonso. He needs a lesson in number 2-manship. (Also in selecting which team to go to, but that would take much more than a lesson.)
Use every man after his desert, and who should scape whipping? Use them after your own honour and dignity.

Did I get that number one status because daddy owns the team or because I'm incredibly brilliant at driving a Formula One car?

In that case, Hamilton. As Ric Flair once said, to be the best you've gotta beat the best... (or in this case, what would be the second best because obviously I, as a driving god, am the best).

Bottas. You're not likely to find a quicker driver who's proven that he will accept being a #2.
PICK 10 COMPETITION (5 wins, 17 podiums): 3rd in 2016
TOP THREE CHAMPIONSHIP (No Limit Excedrin Racing): Champions in 2015 & 2018 | 2nd in 2017 & 2019

Exactly this. If was a driving god then I'd want to prove I was the outright best by doing to Hamilton what Ricciardo did to Vettel.

Take Lewis. He produces strong results regardless of the circumstance. OK, he had personal issues in 2011, but that's about the only knock on him. He gets a pass for needing a time to adjust to a very different setup at Mercedes in 2013. In tight battles with Rosberg he always produced. He had to fight for his rights against Alonso and Button and performed well. Your team will be stronger for having Hamilton.

If you don't want that fire, take Bottas.


And as such, Mercedes have the best driver pairing on the grid.

Bottas for me. Fast, level headed, accepting of the role.
