The next Finnish F1 driver

VALTTERI BOTTAS

The Williams team has confirmed that Finland's Valtteri Bottas has joined as official test driver. The 20-year-old from Nastola was the most successful rookie in last year's Formula 3 Euroseries, finishing the year in the top three, and won the prestigious Masters of F3 event at Zandvoort.

He has good testing position, since Rubens is no spring chicken...

...
HE LOOKS LIKE MARKO ASMER!!!

He was 3rd in F3 Euro series, maybe you didn't watch very closely?

He is managed by a certain Mika Hakkinen. So expect him to be picked up by Macca soon.

IF he gets to drive Williams in 2-3 years, and IF he performs good, then yes, McL is possible indeed.

He definitely has talent. His CV is quite impressive. I just hope he is groomed well and then we can expect great things from him.

Fairly good rookie year in Euro F3, shame there was no wins though.

He has a great chance to win the title this season and follow in the footsteps of some notable ART(ASM) Euro F3 drivers.

You have opened how many threads about drivers other than Fins?

What you guys been grumbling over here???
We need a site like this to see how small country like Finland can produce new talent's.

Waltteri Bottas is a Finn, like future Keke, Mika, or Kimi.

I heard at he is test driver in F1, can you tell me at what team?
