The penalty for Grosjean was stupid. He wasn't dive-bombing, just alongside and lost traction.

I don’t see the problem. Hamilton won the wdc, Bottas did a great job securing the wcc. Oh plus they still have Ocon under contract. What else could the team ask for?Hindsight is 20/20 yada yada yada, but it now seems clear that Mercedes should have put Ocon in the second car. In similar circumstances, McLaren gave Hamilton the chance, and look how that turned out.
I think you're too high on Ocon. He's on par with Perez, whose good but not top tier. I doubt Ocon could beat Bottas.Did not intend to frame it as a problem, just as a missed opportunity. Now that things have tightened up, MB is far more reliant on the skill of the driver to secure the titles. I don't think Bottas could lead that charge if Hamilton stopped racing. I suspect that Ocon could, so why not get him up to speed when you're covered?
I love to disagree with you, but this time I can't.Bottas seems to have no killer instinct. Even if we think that he's as fast as Ocon (or Perez), I don't think he can outrace them. To be fair, if the rest of the grid were made up of Kimi clones, Bottas would have some fight for them.
