Presently 3rd in the driver, standing 33 points behind leader Vettel and 19 behind teammate Hamilton as they head into the break but the Finnish driver feels He can beat both drivers to the title.

"Yes, I can become world champion," Bottas told Sport Bild. "There are still nine races to go, and I believe that I can beat Lewis and Sebastian -- I have already done both this year. I am getting better and better. There is no limit for me. I would never say that one of my opponents is better than me. I believe in myself."

It was viewed in the Hungarian GP when the faster Lewis Hamilton was given the privilege of going forward to challenge for the title ahead of Bottas, though Hamilton gave back the spot after  an unsuccessful attempt to challenge Vettel for the No. 1 spot

"Not every team-mate would have done that for a podium, this shows how well we work as a team," he explained. "But on the other hand, I would have been angry if Lewis had not accepted the deal. The team has made it clear right from the beginning that we are both treated and respected equally.

"We get the same equipment, there is no number one and number two driver, and I trusted that was the case. I am fighting for the world championship, as this is also about my own career. I do not want to be in Lewis' shadow."
