Maldonado and Bottas to race for Williams in 2013

Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas will drive for the Williams

team during the 2013 Formula One season.

Bottas has been promoted from reserve driver for the past two

seasons and will make his F1 debut as the replacement for Bruno

Senna. The Finn was the GP3 champion in 2011.

Maldonado will be racing for Williams for the third successive

season, rewarded for a successful 2012 in which the Venezuelan won

the Spanish Grand Prix.

Williams team principal Frank Williams says the pair are ”two

of the most exciting talents in motor racing.”
