Bottas' two-wheel limited edition consoliation prize

It wasn't the opening race of 2021 that Valtteri Bottas was hoping for in Bahrain, with the Mercedes enduring a botched pitstop that didn't enable him to take part in the final shootout between teammate Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

But the Finn did receive a consolation prize for his efforts at Sakhir, being gifted a special Mercedes-AMG F1 Team V12 Carbon Edition N+ road bike to help him tuck into the slipstream of girlfriend and pro-cyclist Tiffany Cromwell on the roads above Monaco.

Fitted with premium componentry, the bike's bespoke chassis utilises the latest in aerodynamic design and is available to only the very few with just 100 units to be sold worldwide.
