Jul.19 (GMM) Valtteri Bottas believes he is ready to race in F1.

The 22-year-old Finn, who won the GP3 championship last year, is now focusing entirely on his Formula One duties with the famous British team Williams in 2012.

With team co-owner Toto Wolff his manager, Bottas is the Oxfordshire based squad's official reserve driver, appearing in Bruno Senna's car for numerous Friday morning practice sessions at Grands Prix.

He dominated the recent young driver test at Silverstone, and is tipped as a possible Williams race driver for 2013.

"I would like to have a (race) seat," Bottas is quoted by the French language autohebdo.fr.

"I think that is my next goal. If someone asks me, I'll be ready for next year or even sooner."
