Bottas admits he annoyed over ‘Ferrari’ rumours
Williams speedy Valtteri Bottas has expressed his disappointment over a speculation of replacing Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari.

2011 GP3 champion has been tipped to replace fellow citizen Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari as the Finn struggles to match the pace and form of team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

The 25-year-old said that his sole aim would be to win his first grand prix with Williams, the BBC has reported.

“Once you’re in the car you don’t think about any speculation there is,” Bottas said.

“There is nothing in your mind other than driving, but out of the car of course it is disturbing when there are some rumours.

“People are asking the same questions all of the time but it is Formula 1 and you have to deal with it. For me it doesn’t make any difference who the speculation is with.

“In principle it isn’t fair to Williams or to Kimi, there is nothing confirmed as to what will happen – it will be best just to leave us in peace and we can focus on the driving. When there is news it will be announced.”

Bottas has previously told media he only sees Mercedes and Ferrari as more attractive options than Williams at this stage of his career.
