Bottas 'aiming for good result' at Spa

Bottas 'aiming for good result' at Spa

Valtteri Bottas has reiterated his belief that Williams could be on course for a great result this weekend in Belgium.

Williams' revival could hit a high note this weekend at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, a track that is expected to suit the FW36.

The high-speed flowing corners and the long straights should play into the hands of the FW36's aerodynamics, aiding by the power of its Mercedes engine.

As such, many are expecting Williams to take the fight to Mercedes wtih Bottas saying a "good" result should be on the cards.

Bottas said: "Spa is always a great place to go; it's one of the best circuits in the world.

"The elevation changes and high speed corners make it a real pleasure to drive, especially in an F1 car.

"Because of the long straights and variable weather conditions races can be very interesting for the driver and for the fans.

"To be competitive in Spa you need a car with efficient aerodynamics, so we expect to be strong and are aiming for a good result."
