Mercedes have told Valtteri Bottas that they will carry on using team orders until Lewis Hamilton secures the world championship.

Hamilton won in Russia last Sunday to extend his title lead over Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel to 50 points after Bottas was instructed to move aside for his team-mate.

The controversial decision caused uproar among some of the sport’s fans, while Bottas, and for that matter Hamilton – who admitted it was the hollowest victory of his career – were left uncomfortable by the order.’It could definitely happen again,’ Bottas, 117 points adrift of Hamilton, said.
