The winter holidays of the Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas were very useful. Along with the rest, the driver had time to participate in rally competitions. In December 2019, almost immediately after the Formula 1 final in Abu Dhabi, Valtteri went to France, to the Paul Ricard circuit to participate in the Rally Circuit with the PH Sport team. In his first rally race the driver took a victory.
However, Valtteri didn’t stop there. Almost a month later, the driver decided to take part in another rally race - the Arctic Lapland Rally. Bottas joined PH Sport team again, with co-driver Timo Rautiainen.
The race started well for Valtteri, and he even became the second on one of the special stages, but on the first day of the competition he crashed into a tree, lost time and moved to 22 place in the standings. As a result, Bottas finished the race in P9.
"After a messy day 1 and 22nd overall we managed to get back into top 10 with Timo although completely new and challenging conditions for me. Learned a lot. And had fun 💪🏼", - Valtteri wrote on his Twitter.
