Bottas aiming to finish fourth

Date published: November 18 2014

Valtteri Bottas has not given up hope of finishing fourth in the 2014 Drivers’ Championship.

A poor display in the Brazilian GP last time out saw the Williams driver slip to sixth in the standings with Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso overtaking him.

However, only three points separate the three drivers with only the season finale in Abu Dhabi to come this weekend.

“Abu Dhabi is going to be an exciting race and it could play out one of two ways,” he said. The double points could be interesting and we will try and play it to our advantage.

“We have been trying to secure our position in the Championship and so continue to focus on this, but I can still finish fourth in the Drivers’ Championship I will focus on this as well.

“It’s a nice place to go to, the temperature is warm, the people are friendly and the facilities good so I am looking forward to the race.”
