Valtteri Bottas is hoping for a good result at this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix after a good pre-season testing programme at the Circuit de Catalunya during the winter.

After being ahead the double collision on the first lap between Daniil Kvyat and Sebastian Vettel after a strong qualifying performance, the Williams Martini Racing driver finished the Russian Grand Prix in fourth position.

As pre-season testing normally happens in Barcelona, Bottas believe this is a track he has driven the most in his career. He is hopefully of a strong result this weekend just like last year when he finished between the two Ferrari’s in fourth.

“Barcelona is probably the track I’ve driven the most in my life because all of the pre-season testing normally takes place there,” said Bottas. “I like the track and I like Barcelona as city as well, it is a nice place to stay.

“The weather is always good around this time of the year. It is a nice event, overall, and there are plenty of fans, so it would be nice to have a good result there, especially because testing looked good for us there.”
