This Saturday’s qualifying session was a big step forward for Valtteri Bottas. The fixer can sell his teammate at the last minute to get the 15th pole position of his sports career. The lap that gave him the first place was perfect and I ask to take advantage of an error of Lewis hamilton to get first place.
However, the satisfaction of Valtteri Bottas is not the first place, but by how much I take it. The dubbing was less than a tenth and I celebrate on the radio. “That was very close,” he said humorously over the radio. Also in the post classification statements I add an incredible feeling that caught the attention of the fans.
Another issue that Bottas, and many drivers, emphasized was the beauty of the circuit of Imola. The historic route is highlighted by the landscapes that can be seen on TV and from cars. “Pole positios is never easy, but I really enjoyed the track. When you push hard, it is beautiful. I knew I had to improve on the last lap “; commented.
On the other hand, the Finn explained the sensations of obtaining a new pole by winning it to his teammate. “I found those little needed earnings and it’s a great feeling when you get them. I was definitely shaking after the return. It was fun. I suffered when I tried to risk it and go for it. Fight with the instability of the car, ”he added.
To close, Bottas commented that he has great hope for tomorrow’s race. It’s going to be a good fight. It’s one of the longest runs on the calendar to Turn 1, so Lewis and Max (Verstappen) they will haunt me. But yeah, it’s a good place to start, and I hope the pace is good. So the game continues ”, sentenced the Finn.
