Ever-hopeful Bottas thinks he can do it in Baku

BAKU, Azerbaijan – Valtteri Bottas has a score to settle as he heads into Sunday’s Azerbaijan F1 GP Grand Prix hoping to wrest the championship lead away from Mercedes team-mate  Lewis Hamilton.

This year,  already behind Hamilton by six points with 18 GP’s left, he said: “I would prefer to be leading.  If I keep performing well I can turn it around and that’s the goal for Baku.”

The Finn started on pole two weeks ago in Shanghai but Hamilton dropped him off the line.
