786 views

Cool video from Williams F1 as their drivers chat about this past season and the future!

During the 2012 F1 season, Valtteri Bottas in almost all GPs used the car of Bruno Senna at half the Fridays free practice, which, incidentally, was already determined in the contract of the Brazilian driver.

It was a clear indication that Williams were preparing the young Finnish driver, GP2 champion, to replace Senna, at least, if he not showed surprising results above average.

But the performance on Fridays Bottas not rivaled only by the weak times obtained by Senna, he often was faster than the leading team driver, Pastor Maldonado, who managed to win a Grand Prix in the ultra-disputed 2012 season for the traditional English team, after many years away from the podium as the winner.

The video below, produced by Williams Team tries to capitalize on the new rivalry that is on the horizon for next season, which could confirm Bottas as the new talent of F1 and / or consecrate Maldonado as one of the fastest riders starting on grid.
