Bottas' CV is not impressive he took short cuts his entire career his family has a stake in Williams only reason he is there, why isn't he racing in GP2 or Renault 3.5? Too much competition no chance of winning! Senna is already complainig Bottas' setting up the car early Fridays are completely nuts and he has to re-do from zero.

Shortcuts and connections get you into series, but they don't win you races. Valterri's secured consistent top three finishes in rookie seasons. If you don't call that talent, I don't know what is.
