Valtteri Bottas believes that it is important for him to avoid any issues during the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
Despite good results at Alfa Romeo, Bottas has encountered issues throughout race weekends. He suffered mechanical problems at the start of several events as well as had an accident in the opening practice session of the Miami GP.
The Finn hopes that the upcoming race weekend in Baku will unfold without issues.
“Baku is a place with both good and bad memories for me, so I definitely hope to add some more of the pleasant kind this weekend. It’s crucial we can have a trouble-free weekend: we have been having some good results despite some Friday issues so far, and if we were to fix these, we could really see the full potential of our package,” he said.
“We know we can fight towards the front when we do it and it has to be the aim here as well. This is a track that can produce some chaotic races so we will need to be ready to make the most of any opportunity. It could be a lot of fun on Sunday.”
