Finnish racing driver Valtteri Bottas is a rising star of Formula One – enjoying success in his career to date, with a promise of grand slam wins in years to come.
As is the case with many professional racing drivers, Bottas began his career in karting, before moving up to Formula Three. He made his Formula One debut in 2013 as part of the Williams-Renault team after a brief sabbatical. As he graduated from Williams test driver to fully fledged team member founder Sir Frank Williams gushed: “Valtteri is quite simply one of the most talented young racing drivers I have come across, and we expect great things from him in the future.”
He has never won a Formula One Championship but finished third in 2017. Bottas has been a regular fixture in the Williams-Renault and Mercedes teams, partnering with high-profile team-mates including Felipe Massa and Lewis Hamilton.
Bottas is known for his cool, calm and collected personality. This unflappable demeanour has served him well on the racetrack – but when he isn’t competing he has a playful and mischievous streak. He’s also known for his love of saunas and ice baths – taking regular dips in freezing cold lakes in his native Finland. His wife is also a sporting legend in Finland – Olympic swimmer Emilia Pikkarainen.
