Video: Bottas’ first glimpse of Mercedes’ 2017 engine


Ahead of his first season as a Mercedes driver, Valtteri Bottas has continued to familiarise himself with his new team, visiting the engine development team at Brixworth.

Bottas has joined Williams for the 2017 season, replacing World Champion Nico Rosberg as Lewis Hamilton’s new team-mate.

But while the Finn will have to wait until February 23rd for the launch of the new Mercedes F1 car, he has been working with the team behind the scenes.

His latest outing included a visit to Brixworth where he got a glimpse of the 2017 power unit.

This season Mercedes are chasing a fourth straight double in the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships.
