Hungarian Grand Prix: Williams moving in right direction, says Bottas

Valtteri Bottas: The team were very close to securing a double points' finish in Germany...
Valtteri Bottas reckons the Williams F1 team is now moving in the 'right direction', largely due to lots of 'hard work'.

The Grove-based squad has had a lacklustre season so far, and as yet has still to open its points account as the circus heads to Hungary for the tenth round in the 2013 F1 World Championship.

However, while the result last time out in Germany was disappointing, if it wasn't for various problems in the pits, the outcome could have been very different, Bottas believes.

“The team were very close to securing a double points' finish in Germany and the hard work everyone is putting in is moving us in the right direction,” he stated.

“There is normally a big Finnish contingent who fly over to Hungary for this race and I'd like to be able to give them something to cheer about and secure some points for the team,” he added.

Bottas has prior experience of the Hungaroring and did well there in GP3 in 2011, winning the Feature race and finishing second in the Sprint, and he knows only too well what to expect this weekend.

“I have raced at the Hungaroring in Formula Renault and GP3 and drove in FP1 last year and I always found this to be a very demanding track because there are very few places to overtake and the layout has a lot of corners in quick succession which gives you very few opportunities to rest,” he continued.

“The track can be a bit dusty at the beginning of the week as it doesn't get used much during the year, but the grip does increase a lot as the weekend progresses and you notice a big difference between FP1 and FP2,” the Finn concluded.
