Valtteri Bottas : Net Worth and Salary

Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas made his F1 debut with Williams in 2013. He would go on to race for them until the 2016 season. Suddenly, in the wake of Nico Rosberg’s shock retirement, the Finn found himself drafted to Mercedes forthwith.

Bottas’ contract with Mercedes expires at the end of the 2020 season. He has completed three years with the German outfit, soon to be four. His plans for the 2021 season remain clouded with mystery and intrigue at the moment.

The 30-year-old Finn is reportedly worth $20 million, and his salary for the 2018 season was around $12 million. According to several reports, his salary for the 2020 season is estimated to be around $8 million.

Valtteri Bottas : Stats

He scored his first set of points at the 2013 United States Grand Prix with an 8th place 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 rained all over his parade.

In 2019, he was able to match Lewis Hamilton in the early part of the season. While his win counter dried up a little over the remainder of 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.
