As a result, Bottas needed to get off to a strong start to the 2019 season, primarily to avoid being in a position where he fell far enough behind five-time Formula 1 champion teammate Lewis Hamilton to cause the Brackley-based team to use team orders to assist the 34-year-old Briton down the stretch like they did on multiple occasions in the second half of last season. They had two races, and they had been on the flipside of each other.

Fundamentally, Vettel lacked confidence in the vehicle in Bahrain.
"We will keep pushing to extract the maximum performance from our package to deliver the best race we can".
"The Red Bulls have had a bit of a slower start but they won the race here previous year and they particularly finish off strong so I anticipate it could be something similar", Hamilton added.
"I think the (Bahrain) test was very helpful and useful to get some laps in the vehicle and I think we learned some things about the auto, vehicle behavior that maybe we couldn't in Barcelona because we were looking at other things".
He stated that if a person has the straight speed the trace then they will be watching and disappear, but they are going to be working hard to try and understand where we went wrong this weekend and if we can improve the auto. I don't know but I believe it comes more from a confidence point of view. "We're going to maximise our gains through the corners", he added. "So things can go very quickly in F1 and I need to keep the focus on what I am doing in the vehicle". The team have said they would favour Vettel under certain circumstances but Leclerc clearly has no intention of being sidelined. "I have been to Bahrain many times, so I think I know my way around".
"We have got two circuits in a row where we have got long straights".
"You never know what is going on with people in their teams unless you are racing with in the same team, and then you know a bit more". "You need to find your way out of that phase, and Sebastian is a four-time world champion so I am sure he will be able to manage that", he said.
