Is Bottas's Mercedes future already doomed?

Valtteri Bottas spoke of wanting to "disappear" after a tough end to the 2018 Formula 1 season. But when he returns in 2019 - after making his rallying debut, don't forget - he and Mercedes face an uphill challenge in recapturing the magic that was lost last season. Glenn Freeman is joined by Edd Straw and Ben Anderson to assess what went wrong for Bottas in 2018, how he and Mercedes can fix it, and if the presence of Esteban Ocon on the horizon means Bottas will be powerless to keep his drive for 2020 anyway.
