Bottas dominates Masters of F3
14 June 2009 – Valtteri Bottas has claimed victory at the 19th Tango Masters of Formula 3. The Finn raced from pole to victory without being seriously challenged. Bottas finished ahead of Mika Maki and Stefano Coletti.
Sunday's Tango Masters of Formula Three saw Valtteri Bottas start from pole position after his team-mate Jules Bianchi faced a penalty that placed him five places back at the grid. Bottas took advantage of the best starting position and easily claimed victory at Zandvoort.
Bianchi started his race from sixth position but managed to move up to fourth position, just behind Prema's Stefano Coletti. Bianchi was stuck behind the Italian for most of the race and was unable to overtake him in the 25-laps race.
Racing at his home track Renger van der Zande started from eighth position and moved up to sixth place in front of the 27,000 Dutch fans.
