As Formula 1 gears up to make its much-anticipated return in Austria this weekend, one of the big storylines will be how the unique nature of this season impacts the title fight.
Lewis Hamilton is aiming for a record-equalling seventh world title this year, but will need to fend off the threat of emerging stars Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc, both of whom impressed through the 2019 season.
But could his toughest opponent come from within his own team? Valtteri Bottas enjoyed his best season to date in 2019, finishing as runner-up in the championship, and appeared rejuvenated in pre-season testing.
Talk of 'Bottas 3.0' has been rife, but with an extended break and additional time to prepare for the new season, could this really be Bottas' year? And might the shortened season play to his advantage?
In the latest edition of the Is It Just Me? podcast, Jess and Luke discuss Bottas' chances for the 2020 championship and consider what both his and Mercedes' future could look like as the silly season ramps up.
The podcast can be watched on Autosport's YouTube channel, and is also available via all good audio platforms.
