After winning the Russian Grand Prix, Valtteri Bottas is gearing up to try and repeat the feat this weekend at the Eifel Grand Prix.

The Finn wasn’t able to climb the top step of the podium ever since he won the season-opening Austrian Grand Prix. However at Sochi he finally managed to score another victory. The Finn is now ready to build on the “positive momentum”.

“Definitely, I really want to build on that [win],” Bottas said.

“I feel good coming into the weekend because just getting the good result that has been so close for so many races – to actually get it and remind myself of what I’m able to do is a good thing.

“It’s going to be a tricky and pretty special weekend with these conditions but definitely I’ll try to make the most out of it with a good positive momentum.”

Formula 1 hasn’t raced at the Nurburgring track since 2013 and, coupled with the unpredictable weather that is expected throughout the weekend, the Eifel Grand Prix is sure to be quite a challenge for the drivers.

“Actually I’ve been here testing in Formula Renault in, like, 2008 or something. It was snowing and there was proper snow on the track, so it’s nothing new.

“But of course in winter testing, some mornings, it’s not that different to this…

“It just means that we need to be really quick and reactive on finding things with the car set-up, but also on driving,” concluded the Finn.
