Valtteri Bottas has won Sprint Qualifying at Monza and is ready to perform at his best in the race.

Why it matters: The Mercedes driver will start Sunday’s race from the back of the grid, because of a power unit change during the race weekend.

Details:

  • Bottas still believes that he can finish on the podium at Monza.
  • The Finn has also claimed that his Sprint went smoothly, and he was able to hold off Verstappen as he got a good start and made no mistakes.

What he had to say:

  • “The podium is possible; anything is possible, to be honest, if you look at the race last year, what happened, you never know. I’ll keep pushing.”
