Valtteri Bottas Stuttgart Visit

Ahead of the opening pre-season Formula One test of 2017, due to take place at the Circuit de Catalonia in Barcelona Spain at the end of the month, new Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas paid a visit to Stuttgart in order to see the very heart of the brand with the three-pointed star.

As part of the visit, the Finn soaked up the sights of the Mercedes-Benz Museum, catching a glimpse of the Silver Arrows' long motor racing heritage for himself.

Valtteri also met with a number of Mercedes-Benz employees at a Meet & Greet session, where he introduced himself to his new colleagues and answered questions about the new season.

Now it’s time to reflect and finish preparing for the Spanish test that will get underway in less than two weeks time.
