This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit.

Formula One driver Valtieri Bottas made some headlines after his win in Australia last weekend.

Valtieri BottasOn the cool down lap Bottas came on the radio with a salute to no one in particular. Quote: “To whom it may concern: F*** You!” And, yes, he used the whole F-bomb language.

Bottas won’t say who he was targeting. But opening 2019 with a win after a winless 2018 was obviously a confidence builder for the Mercedes driver.

We’re seeing the strength of confidence in March Madness this week. In sports, when all the talent is relatively equal, confidence can mean the difference between success and failure.

Bottas said he just wanted to send his best regards. He said the people to whom it was destined know who they are. I can imagine a year’s worth of Social Media trash will fill any one with anger.

I’m a Lewis Hamilton fan and that’s Valtieri’s teammate at Mercedes. Still, it would be great to see someone who needs it experience some success.
