Valtteri Bottas information & statistics

Valtteri Bottas, Williams FW34, Jerez 2013 wintertest

The latest product of Finland’s famed racing schools, Valtteri Bottas is tipped highly by many to go far in Formula One. Bottas is one of several new names on the grid for 2013 and the Williams driver will be hoping to maximize his talent in the cut throat sport of F1.

Like many of the young drivers in recent years, the 24 year old has a strong CV. Two championships in Formula Renault in 2008 and a GP3 world title in 2011 can’t disguise his potential. That GP3 season caught the eye of the legendary Sir Frank Williams, and Bottas was quickly signed as the team’s reserve driver beating off competition from the likes of Sauber and Force India.

Last 2013 season Bottas participated in several practice sessions, continuing his education as the British team supplied him with the chance to impress. And impress he has done as when the decision came Valterri Bottas was elected to partner Pastor Maldonado for 2013 as Bruno Senna’s replacement. A cool customer behind the wheel, Bottas is the perfect partner for Maldonado’s aggression.

Valterri Bottas (2014)

Valtteri Bottas will be hoping that 2014 is the year where he can fully display his undoubted talents. The Finnish driver had a poor start to his F1 career, although that was largely down to a woeful car last year. Williams was a unhappy place to be but a string of changes has reinvigorated one of the more illustrious teams on the grid. Bottas has been joined by the experienced Felipe Massa and the new rule changes seem to have suited Williams, who many are predicting may be dark horses this year. Bottas will relish the chance to show what he has got after a successful junior career.

Bottas will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of the likes of his countrymen Heikki KovalainenKeke Rosberg, Mika Hakkinen, and Kimi Raikkonen and progress rapidly to the top of the sport and become world champion.
