Valtteri Bottas got the best Monaco result was in 2019 by finishing third. He hoped for a special result this weekend. Dropped by Mercedes in favor of George Russell at the end of 2021, the Finn has enjoyed an excellent season with Alfa Romeo and is currently just 8 points behind former team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
Having reached Q3 in five races so far, the Finn has continued to score points in every race except Saudi Arabia, where he retired due to overheating.
This Alfa Romeo driver said that he was really looking forward to racing this weekend. Monaco is always an exciting weekend. It’s a home weekend for a lot of riders. And it definitely has that feeling that you don’t get at other rounds on the calendar.
He was very curious to see what racing will be like with this new generation of cars. Traditionally, it’s been a tough place to race indoors. And if it’s different this year they could do something spectacular.
He was sure to get closer to the weekend. They have been battling the top drivers for two races in a row. And he didn’t see any reason why they can’t do it again this time. Of course, a big part of the weekend depends on a clean Friday and a good Saturday. If they move up the grid, they have the potential to achieve a special result.
