There are high hopes for Williams novice Valtteri Bottas as he makes his Formula 1 debut in 2013.
Bottas's stats and facts
- Previous teams:
Williams see in the Finn an exceptional talent - and that ability must be very clear for them, as they have taken a significant financial hit in dropping Bruno Senna.
Bottas' performances in Friday practice through 2012 certainly suggested he has great promise - he was usually pretty close to Maldonado.
The pressure is on though, for Williams need points. But he seems level-headed and down to earth.
His progress will be watched with interest.
