All I can say is that Williams bringing in Bottas was yey another huge mistake just like many orhers Williams has being doing in the last decade or so Bottas isnt quicker than Bruno or others like Razia and Alguersuari. Bottas will struggle and without even GP2 experience everything will fall on Maldonados shoulder ehile Bottas becomes another Grosjean 2.0 but with a mucg more difficult car. Toto Wolff looked his own personnal interedt signing Bottas which will bring losses in both financial and development fields for Williams in 2013.

When you got a team manager being also the personnal manager for an athlete it always end up with the manager putting his own interest in first place. This Wolff n Bottas case is just yet another case as we see on motogp football etc. The big looser will be Williams I doubt Bottas will bring half the money from Finland Senna was bringing to the team (around 20 million usd) and he wont perform any better. If a Ceo hired someone and got part of the persons salary I doubt he would get to keep his job. Maybe a blessing in disguise as Senna is said to have closed with FI.

"I'm happy to say he is not only doing a great job on track but off it, as we have been quite successful in Finland securing backing. It is not unsubstantial," he is quoted by the Scotsman newspaper.

What? You mean Bottas got sponsorship but the sponsors don't want to be exposed or marketed!!! I believe this is a stunt from Toto Wolff his manager who will try to get sponsors onboard now that hid pupil got the Williams seat. Very dangerous move from Williams Ceo that can bring huge losses to the team and shareholders in the next fiscal year. Not a good move from ceo point of view but good move as a drivers manager!

May Bottas' sponsors please stand up?
