Valtteri Bottas, Williams, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Montreal, 2013Valtteri Bottas says Williams need more rain to get a good result in tomorrow’s Canadian Grand Prix.

Bottas gave the team their best qualifying result of the season so far by taking third place in today’s rain-hit session.

“If the conditions are dry tomorrow then it will be difficult to stay where we are, so I will be hoping that we see some rain,” said Bottas.

“The whole team has been working hard to improve our performance and we have been making steady improvements with each race.”

Bottas said it was “a great feeling to qualify in third place”. “The team did a really good job today,” he added.

“The showers made the track very slippery but this suited us as the car handled the conditions well. We were on the right tyres at the right time which was so important today.”
