The Mexico City GP polesitter Valtteri Bottas has reflected on the successful Saturday at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.


  • Bottas is very happy with his Q3 lap, calling it “one of my best laps”.
  • The Finn admits that higher temperatures benefitted Mercedes.

What he had to say:

  • “It was an awesome lap. Especially the first run in Q3. I couldn’t quite match the same last sector in the second run, but I think honestly that first run in Q3 was one of my best laps. That is a good feeling.”
  • “This morning actually I was feeling good. We were lacking a bit on pace on lap one, but I think with higher temperatures this afternoon than in the morning, it came our way I think.”
  • “I also tried to optimize everything with tires temps and set-up, and it was a joy to drive.”
