Valtteri Bottas starts from the field in Sakhir – and wants to win the race …
Valtteri Bottas: “Starting from the field is always easier, especially on this track. We will see what the wind and sand situation will be like, but last week the pole brought an advantage – I hope that history will repeat itself today.
It’s colder today than in the past, and that’s good news for tires, because you usually have to be careful on this track to avoid overheating the tires. As for the wind, its direction has changed compared to yesterday. On the way from the pits to the starting grid, I will be able to assess the balance of the car.
With the arrival of George on the team, the situation changed, but it’s hard for me to say exactly how, because we didn’t have a division into numbers one and two before. In any case, whoever drives the other car, Lewis or George, is still trying to win pole position and win the race. “
