I think it would have been beneficial for Bottas to do a year of either GP2, FR3.5 or even F2. Those series are a step up from F3 and GP3.

Sure he was GP3 champion but dicing it up with more mature adversaries could have only improved him. GP3 is like high school, and GP2 is like college.

But maybe using all of 2012 to test the F1 car in a relaxed environment allowed him to learn a lot more about the car. We will really find out come 2013.

What? His wife really tests for Williams and he manages Bottas and makes Williams lose USD20 million from Sennas backers! How can an F1 team give themselves this kind of administration???

@David Chaste

Didn't do kimi much harm coming straight into F1.

If he's as good as they say he'll be fine, otherwise it could be another busy year for the Williams parts dept....well Pastor drives for them so it will be anyway.

Talking of Susie Wolff, 'talented' Williams test driver, and wife of the main Williams financial backer Toto Wolff, is actually 30yrs old in a few days...if you look hard you'll find all manner of 'oddities' connected with the Wolff's....one thing Senna objected to was his somewhat enforced signing to 'Spoton marketing' ( one that actually cost him when he didn't need nor want it ! ), you'll never guess who owns that affair..Susie herself. To 'have one's finger in too many pies' was coined after the Wolff's themselves...didn't you know that :P
