Valtteri Bottas : Stats

He scored his first points at the 2013 US Grand Prix with an 8th placed finish. He followed it up with his maiden podium in Austria 2014 coupled with two back-to-back podiums in Silverstone and Hockenheim.

The top step of the podium beckoned in 2017 at the Russian Grand Prix, his first of 3 wins in his entire F1 career so far. However, he underwent a dry spell in 2018 without reaching the top step at all. He came close in Azerbaijan but a heartbreaking puncture put paid to that hope.

In 2019, he was able to match Lewis Hamilton in the early part of the season. While his win counter dried up a little during the season, he was still quick enough to keep pace. Despite not clinching the World Championship, Bottas had his best year in F1 in 2019, winning 4 Grands Prix.

Bottas helmet is pretty synonymous with most F1 fans these days. The Finn’s lid features a dark background with splashes of white and blue to accentuate his Finnish background. Interestingly, Valtteri’s helmet is non-symmetrical, which is the style he prefers.
