Valtteri Bottas has shared his thoughts after the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, where he finished 3rd.


  • Bottas is happy that Mercedes managed to score more points than Red Bull Racing.
  • The Finn admits that the Virtual Safety Car was helpful in overtaking Sergio Perez.

What he had to say:

  • “The start was quite tricky. I’m disappointed with the start and the first lap, but I tried. Afterwards, the pace was actually quite okay.”
  • “I thought we could have done one-stop [strategy] quite easily, but we decided to do a two-stop. I’m glad we got more points than Red Bull and that Lewis [Hamilton] had an amazing drive today.”
  • “The VSC was in a good place for me for once, so I was happy with that. Still, solid points”
