Bottas targets 2013 F1 debut
19 September 2011 – Valtteri Bottas admits that a Formula 1 debut in 2013 would be the perfect progression for his racing career. The only driver to win Zandvoort’s respected Masters of Formula 3 race twice, the Finn – Williams reserve driver since 2010 – clinched the GP3 championship title at Monza.
When asked if a 2013 F1 debut with Williams should be considered feasible, Bottas replied:
“Well, we never know! We have a good working relationship and I am working as hard as I can to improve as a driver and to get there one day. I would really want to race there, but with Formula 1 there are always so many different things which can decide whether or not you get a seat. So we need to see, but 2013 would be ideal.”
