Valtteri Bottas thinks he faces a tough task at the US GP to pass McLaren and Ferrari, saying they are “not the easy cars to overtake”.
- Despite claiming fourth place in qualifying, Bottas starts the US GP in 9th place due to an engine change earlier this weekend.
- Ferrari and McLaren are close to the pace of Red Bull and Mercedes and have shown impressive gains over the season to occasionally match them.
What he had to say:
- “They’re not the easy cars to overtake for sure,” Bottas told Motorsport.com.
- “And based on what I felt yesterday, following was quite tricky, but at least it seems like it’s gonna be more or less a two-stop race, so there will be at least two opportunities with the strategy. And you never know, there will be opportunities.”
