Valtteri Bottas - Happy And Encouraged By Mercedes New Parts
8/7/2017


Mercedes Driver Valtteri Bottas has complemented the upgrades brought to Austria by the Mercedes team saying it's a "good step forward" and that he expects more as weekend progresses.

The upgrades which included a tweaked front wing and nose helped notably as Hamilton topped whole Bottas finished third.

The Weekend will be more competitive as Ferrari, also had a good pace in FP1 and FP2, hinting a closer race than in Baku
"They're quite a few -- new front wing, nose, floor, etc., and it was all a good step forward," Bottas said of the new upgrades. "I think it was [a productive day], as we were evaluating all the new bits we had in the car today and it was interesting.
"It was good to see we made progress with the car's aerodynamics, as any steps are welcome. I'm still playing around with the set-up of the car, trying to get it well balanced and it was a pretty straightforward day."

"[Ferrari] seem to be close, but our car is feeling good but it's still possible to make it better for tomorrow. It's always difficult to say from practice, but it should be an interesting weekend.

"The track is short, so the gaps are closer, of course, but it's good that we seem to be on the front end. The lap I had was definitively not a great one, there was more pace in there. I lost three or four tenths in the last sector, so the car felt definitively quick."
