Bottas uses false name for running race

Valtteri Bottas used a false name in order to enjoy a recent running race, the Finnish newspaper Iltalehti reported on Thursday.

The report said an entrant called ‘Valto Pikkarainen’ finished the 10 kilometre race with a competitive time of 38 minutes and 54 seconds.

So as the secret now emerges, the Williams driver explained why he chose to enter with a false name.

“Just so there would be no journalists there. And there weren’t!” said Bottas.

He said running is both a good activity for fitness, and enjoyable.

“I have always liked sport and running especially. I’ve done a little trail running and some triathlon,” said Bottas.
