Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team’s Lewis Hamilton has welcomed his new team mate Valtteri Bottas to the Silver Arrows.

It was confirmed earlier today that Bottas has joined the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team, replacing Nico Rosberg who last month announced his retirement from Formula One having won the 2016 world championship.

Hamilton, who is a three time world champion took to Twitter to say:

Welcome to the Team, Valtteri!

Hamilton had a well documented rough relationship with Nico Rosberg during their four seasons together, however Bottas does not foresee any issues with Hamilton.
