Valtteri Bottas reveals he will keep his beard!

Valtteri Bottas says he will keep the beard that has become a feature of his season after growing the facial hair over the winter.

Bottas returned to F1 in 2019 following a poor end to 2018 and was immediately on the pace, winning two of the first four races, with fans putting it down to the beard, and the Finn says he won't shave it off.

He said in an interview on F1's official website: “I have no need or will to get rid of it and it purely came about because I had such a good time off in December that I just forgot to shave.

“I looked in the mirror and just decided to keep the beard." 

There you go, hopefully Bottas can return to his early season form and give us a show when F1 returns in a few weeks' time...
