Bottas: I can't wait to go out again!

Valtteri Bottas enjoys a day of running with Williams in Spain
Valtteri Bottas says he is looking forward to regular running time n the new Williams FW33 after testing the car on the second day of running in Barcelona.

The test driver was given the chance to sample the car ahead of 15 outings in Friday practice during the season ahead, starting with the Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang.

On a trouble free day, the Finn managed nearly 120 laps on his single day behind the wheel of the car and he admitted he couldn't now wait for his next run out.

“I really enjoyed today,” he said. “It was great to get back in the car as I have been waiting for this day since I took part in the young driver test in Abu Dhabi last year.

“The FW34 again showed good reliability, as we completed 117 laps while doing some interesting tests with the car set-up. I'm looking forward to assisting the team at race weekends this season and can't wait to drive the car again.”

Chief operations engineer Mark Gillan said he was pleased with Bottas' performance behind the wheel fo the car, with the team having worked through a programme similar to that he would face in a Friday session.

“Valtteri did a good job today completing 117 laps without issue,” he said, “working on general car set-up with a run plan tailored around familiarising him with a typical Friday P1 race session.”
