Non-Executive Director of Mercedes Niki Lauda said that he is in close contact with the rookie team Valtteri Bottas.
Lauda pleased with serious approach Finn and his desire as quickly as possible to settle into a new environment.
“I am constantly in touch with Bottom,’ said Nicky in an interview with Swiss newspaper Blick. – He wants to know everything. It makes me happy. I look forward to an interesting season. From us he gets the maximum support.
We understand that the first three races [in Australia, China and Bahrain] will be on completely different tracks, but we all know what can happen to us. During the first four-day block of pre-season testing, everyone will meet the new technical regulations.
Then we’ll have a four day break to upgrade the car. But the most important will be the period from 7 to 10 March, when no one will bluff and all show their cards before the start of the season in Melbourne. This time we want to know your level in comparison with competitors”.
Recall that Valtteri was signed with Mercedes a one-year contract.
