Williams Martini Racing driver Valtteri Bottas describes Silverstone as one of his favourite tracks on the Formula 1 calendar.

“It’s one of the most enjoyable tracks to drive a Formula One car because of the high-speed nature of the circuit,” said Bottas.

The Finn sees the high-speed nature of the track as the perfect opportunity for Williams to have a good race and to use the aerodynamic nature of the FW38 to its full effect.

Bottas understands the historical significance of the British Grand Prix and the links between Williams and Silverstone and what a victory will mean to the fans and people working in the factory nearby.

Silverstone is known for some famous corners that have been treasured in Formula One for over 50 years.

“My favourite part of the track is Becketts, which is a lot of fun because it has a really nice flow to it,” said the Finn.

The passionate British fans separates the British Grand Prix from any other race, Bottas has praised the support from the British fans and the support he gets at Silverstone.

“The crowd at Silverstone is amazing as well. I’m always impressed by how much support the motorsport fans in the UK give to us,” said Bottas.

Williams have won the British Grand Prix 10 times and Bottas will look to continue the tradition, competition will be tough but anything is possible if there is changeable that could bring an unexpected surprise.
