Valtteri Bottas has reflected on last Sunday’s Mexico City GP, where he faced plenty of misfortunes.
Why it matters: Bottas was spun by Daniel Ricciardo at the race start and was stuck behind the Australian later on in the race. He also had issues at his pit stops.
- The Finn admits that the opening lap incident heavily affected his race.
- Bottas reveals that he had limited resources in order to make a recovery drive.
What he had to say:
- “It was very tricky for me, obviously. I was quite compromised with the first corner incident. Obviously a lot less than what I aimed for today. Not my lucky day.”
- “[We were] also quite limited with the engine and brake temperatures, so I couldn’t attack for many laps in a row. So I had to go back and forward, and couldn’t find a way to progress.”
