Valtteri Bottas

The Williams team’s talent spotting continues, this time with the signing of Finland’s Valtteri Bottas as the team’s new test driver.

The 20-year-old was the F3 Euroseries’ most successful rookie last season, winning the prestigious Masters F3 event at Zandvoort and finishing in the top-three in the championship.

Bottas also won the Formula Renault Eurocup and the Formula Renault Northern Eurocup in 2008.

Bottas will compete in the F3 Euroseries for a second season this year, with the ART team.

Will Bottas emerge as F1’s next Flying Finn in a few years time?
