Mercedes: "We wanted to give Valtteri something else, but there was a problem"

Mercedes says that vibrations did not put Valtteri Bottas on the opposite strategy of his teammate Lewis Hamilton. This forced Bottas into the pits earlier than intended. During the race Bottas specifically asked his engineer if he could be put on the opposite tyre from Hamilton. James Vowles, chief strategist on the team, explains why this didn't happen in an interview on YouTube. "Around lap 30 both cars were on the medium tire. We expected to have to stop one more time before the end of the race. During laps 29 and 30 we noticed a vibration in the front tyres of Valtteri. It got worse and worse".
