Bottas out to 'pick things up' from Massa

Thursday 19-December-2013 13:40

Felipe Massa will bring a wealth of experience to Williams in 2014, and Valtteri Bottas is confident he will benefit.

While Bottas will only be in his second season in Formula One, next year will mark his Brazilian team-mate's 12th season on the grid with eight of those being at Ferrari.

There is no doubt that Massa will be able to show the 24-year-old some new tricks.

"It's difficult to say yet what I will be able to learn from him, but from every driver there can always be different things to pick up, whether it's something to do with the driving style or how they like to set up a car," Bottas is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"He has seen a lot, he comes from Ferrari and maybe there are things that they do a bit differently there so maybe you can pick up something.

"I will definitely keep an eye out and if there's something to learn, I will take it."
