Q&A: Valtteri Bottas, Williams

Toto is part of my management team and has always supported by career, but because of his involvement with Williams he wasn't part of the negotiations for my contract with the team. As with all decisions at Williams, Sir Frank and the Board of Directors get to make the final decision. I'm grateful to Toto for helping introduce me to the Williams F1 Team, but it has been up to me to prove to Frank and the rest of the team that I have the talent and commitment to deliver the results they desire.

Q:
What do you think it means for Finland to have another F1 driver on the grid?

Valtteri Bottas:
Hopefully they are proud to have another Finnish driver in F1 and I hope to get a lot of support from the Finnish fans who have always been very good to me. To have another Finnish flag on the car next year will be very special.

Q:
You have considerable support from Finland, can you tell us about that?

Valtteri Bottas:
I've had a lot of support from back home, starting way back in karting and since then I have been lucky to have been supported by some great Finnish companies. Without this sort of backing I would not be where I am today, so I'm very grateful and hopefully I can taste success with Williams and pay back those who have helped me get to F1.

Q:
Fast forward to this time next year, what achievements would you be happy with?

Valtteri Bottas:
As a team I think we should be aiming to score more points than this year and really get the most out of the car. Personally I hope to look back and feel that I have learnt a lot and developed as a driver over the course of the season, having scored a lot of points for the team.
