Valtteri Bottas: “It’s a very nice circuit to drive”


Valtteri Bottas will be looking to put the disappointments of previous Brazilian Grand Prix behind him as he aims for a podium finish at the Interlagos circuit this weekend.

The Williams Martini Racing driver finished tenth a year ago at the circuit having retired from the race in 2013, but feels the track is nice to drive, and wants to fight the Scuderia Ferrari and Infiniti Red Bull Racing drivers for top three finish.

“I haven’t had the best races in Brazil in the past, but I’m looking forward to fixing that,” revealed Bottas. “It’s a very nice circuit to drive, it has a good combination of different types of corners, and it’s good for racing with good possibilities for overtaking.

“The fans are very passionate and obviously with Felipe [Massa] being Brazilian there is a lot of support for Williams Martini Racing.

“Hopefully this time around I can have a good result. We will be looking to fight with Ferrari and Red Bull for an opportunity to be on the podium. That will be the target.”
