The Formula 1 driver Valtteri Bottas It is news again and, once again, it is not because of his good work within a circuit. In fact, this time he has not even had time to arrive to be the protagonist of a story in which the Finn comes out badly. In the preview of Azerbaijan GP, which will be played next weekend, the one of Mercedes has been thrown in the Helsinki airport.
Bottas’ cursed nut at the Monaco GP: Mercedes has been unable to remove it and they will have to split the wheel
After his catastrophe in the last Monaco GP, in which a broken nut forced him to abandon when he was second, a problem with flights have left Bottas unable to leave Finland and forcing him to miss, at least, the press conference prior to each Grand Prize.
However, the Mercedes ended up appearing electronically. “I am still in finland. It should actually be in Baku right now. We are well prepared as a team. Hopefully I’ll be there in the afternoon“, it indicated by videoconference.
Nevertheless, your presence at the race in Baku is not assured since the air connection with Helsinki is quite bad, without commercial flights arriving directly, forcing the pilot to stop over on the way. Although it is unlikely, the networks have taken the opportunity to remind the Finn that George Russell could replace him in the Azerbaijan GP … and in the future of the team.
