Bottas pins hopes on Williams updates
30 September 2013 – Valtteri Bottas is hopeful that Williams will take a step closer to the top ten at this weekend's Korean Grand Prix, having struggled for performance in Singapore.
The former GP3 Champion, who wound up in 13th position and two places behind team-mate Pastor Maldonado at the Marina Bay street venue, made reference to a range of car upgrades being brought to Yeongam by the Grove-based outfit.
"We struggled with the pace of the car in Singapore but we are bringing some upgrades to this race," explained the Finn, who is yet to score a Formula 1 point. "Hopefully these new parts will result in improved performance for us this weekend.
"Whilst this will be my first race at the Korea International Circuit, I drove the track in FP1 last year so I have experience to draw upon that will prove useful."
Maldonado, who scored Williams' only point of the season to date in Hungary, added: "I was close to finishing in the points in Singapore and we will be looking to learn from that race and make the adjustments needed to challenge for a top ten finish."
