Valtteri Bottas felt he got everything he could out of his car during qualifying at Interlagos for the Brazilian Grand Prix on Saturday, and was happy to get ahead of one of the Ferrari drivers.

The Williams Martini Racing driver qualified fourth ahead of fellow Finn Kimi Raikkonen but will drop to seventh as a result of the penalty he acquired during practice for overtaking during a red flag period, but feels he has good pace to have a good race on Sunday afternoon.

“It was a good qualifying session,” said Bottas. “I felt more and more comfortable with the car as the grip of the track increased.

“It’s always a good feeling when you have got the maximum out of the car. It was good to have one quicker car behind, which is always nice.

“With the penalty I’m starting seventh but we can do a lot of good things from there, it’s a long race and we have good race pace.”
