A second consecutive podium for Williams’ Bottas on British GP

Felipe Massa was forced to retire after getting caught in a multi-car accident at the start that red flagged the race for nearly an hour.

Valtteri Bottas achieved his best ever race result and a second consecutive podium in an eventful British Grand Prix today.
After initially moving from 14th to ninth before the restart, Valtteri continued to make great progress with a brilliant drive through the field into an eventual second position.

Rob Smedley, Head of Performance Engineering: It’s a slightly mixed weekend. It’s a great result for Valtteri and he showed incredible race craft throughout the whole race. You couldn’t ask for anything more from the driver; he changed his race around with those overtakes in the first stint.
