Randstad USA/Williams Martini Racing at K1 Speed
30 October 2014
Last night we saw Randstad USA take over K1 Speed Austin for a special event. With Williams Martini F1 team driver, Valterri Bottas, making a special appearance. Everyone had a great time meeting and receiving coaching tips from Bottas on our track. Bottas waived the checkered flag and took photos with fans. Thanks to Randstad USA for this unique experience.
Bottas finished on the podium at Sochi and is looking for another strong result heading into the USGP at the Circuit of the Americas. The team is looking to pull further away from Ferrari for the third place in the Constructors Championship.
“Austin is a really cool track, one of the best on the calendar,” stated Bottas. “The city is nice, the fans and atmosphere are great, so it’s one of the best places of the season to go to. I have good memories from there as I got my first points in Formula 1 in Austin last season.
“We are definitely targeting to be on the podium again and extend the advantage we have on Ferrari in the Constructors’ points. Everyone is feeling positive about Texas, so it should be fun.”

The Williams Mercedes FW36 is one of the most technologically advanced Formula One cars produced by Williams.
