Tomcat173 commented on the post, Bottas using own simulator to prepare for Algarve return

In the round-up: Valtteri Bottas says is looking forward to racing at the Autodromo do Algarve again when F1 makes its first visit to the track this weekend, and is preparing for it in the simulator he had built at his home earlier this year.

What they say

Bottas raced at the Algarve circuit as part of the British Formula 3 series in 2009, up against rivals including the eventual champion in the series that year, Daniel Ricciardo.

It’s always nice to have a new circuit for Formula 1. Like we saw in Mugello, it’s really nice to have something new, something different.

I’ve been there, I’ve had one or two races there with F3 but that’s about 10 years ago. But I know the track a bit and we did already some prep with the team when I was able to go to UK, some simulator prep, and I have a home simulator as well so for sure I can do a bit of work there.
