Bottas pleased with latest Williams outing
26 October 2012 – Valtteri Bottas was back in the cockpit of Bruno Senna’s Williams in India on Friday, enjoying his 13th race weekend practice session of the year. Again raising eyebrows, the Finn ended the 90 minutes ahead of regular racer team-mate Pastor Maldonado.
“It was a good first practice today because we managed to complete a busy programme,” said the GP3 Champion of 2011. “We completed some good aero evaluations and managed to get a good amount of data.
"This was my first time driving this circuit and I can tell that it will become one of my favourites; it has a nice flow to it and the surface is very smooth, which means that tyre wear is lower so you can push the car a bit more.”
Bottas is widely expected to race alongside Maldonado at Williams in 2013.
