All I know is that he won GP3 last year. "Hear say" information is that he has turned a few heads in the pit lane already. With Maldonado having a magnetic pull towards other cars and Senna being too slow, I don't think Williams would lose much, if say Maldonado was given a race ban or two. We might get a glimpse of what Bottas has to offer. He is bound to replace Senna at the end of the year. Senna's chances of being in a Williams in 2013 are as bright as Massa driving a Ferrari in 2013.

What an exciting start, boring middle and interesting 3/4/5 place races towards the end.
They lost out on strategy. They were initially planning on 3 stops for Hulkenberg and then converted him to 2 stops after seeing everyone on 2 stopper and 1 stoppers.

Di Resta was without KERS for the entire race. Thats the reason he lost so much time. Encouraging signs for Monza though.
