It is the latest unexpected viral moment for the Finn who has become somewhat of a cult hero for his embrace of social media.

Earlier this season he made the paddock laugh by presenting ex-teammate Lewis Hamilton with a naked photo of himself.

And even on the same day as Arcangel’s new song was released, Bottas was busy plotting his own social media buzz with a video of his funny new haircut.

However, Arcangel is not the first Spanish musician to record a song paying tribute to an F1 driver. A song called ‘Fernando Alonso’ from 2020 currently has 8.3m views on YouTube.

Alfa Romeo driver Bottas finished 10th in the 2022 F1 standings.
