His teammate Lewis Hamilton won the Brazilian Grand Prix as the reigning Formula One world champion ended his run of three races without a win.
Red Bull Racing-Honda driver Max Verstappen finished second as he beat Bottas to the finishing line in an enthralling race. 
Verstappen is sitting at the top of the Drivers' Championship standings and he is followed by Hamilton with three races left in the current campaign. 
Bottas will be hoping to cement his place in the top three by winning the Qatar Grand Prix with his hopes of winning the 2021 Formula One championship having ended.

"I kept pushing and I have to say it’s so good seeing Lewis winning this race from where we started," Bottas said after the Brazilian Grand Prix.
"I feel Lewis was in his own league today and this weekend, so it was an incredible job. But obviously, I didn’t give up, kept pushing, and still managed to get to the podium. 
"It means we get more points than Red Bull."
Mercedes are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Red Bull Racing-Honda and Ferrari respectively.
