Valtteri Bottas's resurgence at the start of 2019 has prompted comparisons to Nico Rosberg's 2016 season, when the German overcame Lewis Hamilton to win his only world championship. But the Rosberg-Hamilton dynamic proved problematic for Mercedes, which has already said publicly it wants to "avoid" a repeat of how that relationship deteriorated.
