Bottas heads to Singapore just after tying the knot

A perhaps missed opportunity from a professional perspective occurred at the most recent Grand Prix for Williams Martini Racing’s Valtteri Bottas, when the Finn finished sixth and failed to end Williams’ run of missing top-five results.

But an important moment from a personal perspective occurred in the interim between the Italian Grand Prix at Monza on Sept. 4 and this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix on Sept. 18.

Bottas got married to girlfriend Emilia Pikkarainen, a swimming star, this weekend.

Bottas posted this photo over the weekend, shot by Glenn Dunbar, and is definitively smiling by Finnish standards.

Bottas has finished 13th, 11th and fifth in his three Singapore Grand Prix starts.
