Injured driver Valtteri Bottas looks on track to making a return to the grid at next weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix.
The Williams driver was declared unfit to race at last weekend’s season-opening Australian Grand Prix after injuring his lower back in qualifying for the race at Albert Park. The team confirmed that the Finn suffered an annular tear in a disc in his lower back.
This week, he has taken to social media to keep fans posted on his recovery efforts, posting a picture on Twitter performing physiotherapy routines in a swimming pool.
“Progress is being made and every day is a good step forward. Can’t wait for Malaysia!” he wrote.
