Valtteri Bottas believes that an 'opportunity' to drive with the new Audi team in 2026 may allow him to get back onto the podium, after claiming he is still 'hungry' for success.
The Finn has found himself racing around the lower midfield since joining Alfa Romeo (now Stake F1) back in 2022. Alongside Zhou Guanyu, the pair have formed a solid partnership and Bottas himself has accumulated 59 points for the team.
However, it's a long way away from the five seasons that preceded that for the 34-year-old, who claimed 10 race victories between 2017-2021 for Mercedes as the Brackley-based team dominated the sport.
