Macau Grand Prix
|The Flying Lap, Episode 46: Macau GP Debrief; Brazilian GP Preview|
November 25, 2011
In the midst of a busy week for motor sport, we talk to two key men of the moment - AT&T Williams Reserve Driver, Valtteri Bottas, and Daniel Juncadella, winner of last Sunday's Macau Grand Prix. A protege of Mika Hakkinen, the 1998-99 F1 World Champion, Finland's Valtteri Bottas excelled in karts before graduating to single-seaters. Although Valtteri is the only driver ever to win two F3 Masters events, his Euro F3 season in 2010 was nonetheless difficult. He more than made up for that in 2011, however, with a brilliant win in the GP3 Championship. Valtteri also tested for Williams after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, matching the times of regular drivers Pastor Maldonado and Rubens Barrichello, before flying off to Macau to drive for the Galaxy Double-R team. Despite a late arrival, he was right on the pace and looking at a win when he make a small mistake and touched the wall. Daniel Juncadella went on to score a momentous victory in Macau, immediately elevating his standing not only in Spain but also on the world stage. Daniel is the product of a Spanish racing dynasty - two of his uncles (Alex Soler-Roig and Luis Perez-Sala) raced in F1 and a third - Jose Juncadella - was very fast in the 1970s with a Ferrari 512M (amongst other quick machinery) - but is very much his own man.
