Bottas targets Bulls in Montreal

Valtteri Bottas says his aim is to challenge the Red Bulls in Canada as he chases his first podium finish.


The Williams driver will start Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix from fourth on the grid after an impressive showing in qualifying.

Bottas' 1:15.550 meant he finished the Saturday afternoon session 0.676s behind the pace-setting Nico Rosberg.

The 24-year-old, though, had hoped to at least be third, a position he is targeting for Sunday's race.

"We need to be happy with the result," the Finn insisted. "It was really, really close.

"On the last run there was some traffic which cost the opportunity to improve the time, but luckily I had done a good lap on the first run in Q3.

"We've been competitive all weekend so I'm looking forward to the race. I'm very happy with the car, we've made so much progress.

"I know we can challenge Red Bull here and we have great straightline speed, so we'll see."
