When asked however if he would move aside for Hamilton to get a points advantage, Bottas added: “At this situation, yes, I would do it.
“We are here as a team and we need to make sure we win both the titles. Not only the constructors’ but the drivers’.
“At the moment, Lewis has the greater chance for that so that is the situation.”
The battle between Hamilton and Verstappen continues this Sunday at the Russian Grand Prix, after both drivers were left with no points in the Italian Grand Prix two weeks ago due to a crash.
