Bottas happy with qualy display

Valtteri Bottas feels Williams did the best they could during qualifying at Budapest and it turned out to be a "really good day" for the team.

The Grove squad were expected to struggle a bit at the Hungagoring as the track doesn't really suit the FW36, but Bottas managed to qualify P3 behind the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg and the Red Bull of Sebastian Vettel.

"I think maybe a little bit of a surprise," the Finn said. "We knew that Red Bull was going to be really quick here and also Ferrari, and obviously Mercedes like always.

"The nature of the track is in theory for us not the best, but we have been able to work really well as a team and bring some updates that have worked well.

"Obviously we are still missing some grip compared to other cars, but today was a really good day from us. We have a good chance to get some really good points."
