Valtteri Bottas says he’s “only got one thing on his mind” for this weekend’s Russian Grand Prix as the Finn searches for his first victory in 2018. 

Bottas recorded his first Formula 1 win ever in Sochi last season, holding off a charging Sebastian Vettel and taking victory by less than a second. 

“Strong track normally,” Bottas commented at Thursday’s press conference, “I’ve had pretty decent races so in that way it’s a nice approach to the weekend.”

Lewis Hamilton has recorded seven wins this season, but Bottas reassured fans that “being on the pole and winning the race” was his focus for the weekend.
