May 28 (GMM) Williams‘ new test driver made his formula one track debut this week.

In January, the British team signed 20-year-old Finnish F3 driver Valtteri Bottas.

As well as race driver Nico Hulkenberg, he drove the FW32 car on Monday at Silverstone.

“It was a great day for Valtteri,” spokeswoman Claire Williams is quoted by Finland’s Turun Sanomat, “and the team was also pleased.”
