Why Bottas is excited by life in F1 after Mercedes

Mercedes dumped him for George Russell, so Valtteri Bottas has reunited with old boss Fred Vasseur in a bid to bring Formula 1 glory back to Alfa Romeo. And as Oleg Karpov finds out, Bottas has “learned a lot” from a driver who knows a thing or two about achieving success…

Surely it had to be the first question to Valtteri Bottas, were you to meet him during one of his early visits to his new team’s base in Hinwil, Switzerland.

“How do you like coffee here, Valtteri?” we ask.

“There is still work to do,” Alfa Romeo’s new Finn laughs in response. “There’s nothing wrong with the coffee, but it can always be better. But I’m on it,” he says, adding confidently: “I’m gonna sort it.”
