Bottas preparing to leave Mercedes pressure chamber

Valtteri Bottas is looking forward to “less pressure” but “more responsibility” as he leaves behind his five-year stint at Mercedes. “This has been quite a pressure chamber,” Bottas, speaking at his second-last race for Mercedes in Saudi Arabia, told the Finnish newspaper Iltalehti. “I expect there to be less pressure but I will certainly have more responsibility,” he added, referring to his impending move to Alfa Romeo. From a personal point of view, Bottas’ feelings must be mixed. “Obviously I didn’t achieve my own main goal,” Bottas admits. “Things will start at Alfa Romeo in mid-January,” he revealed. It would also be nice to go to Australia for a couple of weeks,” added Bottas, whose girlfriend is Australian professional cyclist Tiffany Cromwell.
