Not driving for Williams he won't, the sooner he can land himself a competitive drive the better, several years driving for a uncompetitive team like Williams does nobody any favours. They may have won a race last season but appear to have returned to type again this year, sad but the gradual decline seeme set to continue.

I'm hoping Kim I goes to RBR and Bottas to Lotus. You can tell Bottas is a mini Iceman in the making (on track that is, no one will ever be the same as the Iceman off the track). Back when he was the reserve for Williams last year, he would drive faster in FP1 than Pastor and Bruno in FP2 with a green track. I am excited to see what he can do with a real car!

Ok I had high hopes for Williams after she took over because Toto was a lunatic but I'm afraid that is now the Williams' modus operandi after hearing Claire saying this. Compare his results to Bruno's and you see that Bottas is slower than Maldonado in the races lol Bruno was much faster than Maldonado in the races and Bruno brought 5x more money to the team than Bottas did. As Maldonado have said Bottas is not a rookie and should had been up to speed by now.

He is in a bad car so by F1 logic he is bad.

He has already started to Outqualify and outrace Maldonado which is a very promising start, bianchi on the other hand has Max Chilton as a team mate so its no surprise hes made to look good.
