Bottas about new Kymi ring: Hopefully we can race F1 here someday

Valtteri Bottas says he hopes Formula 1 will one day race on the new circuit in Finland, the 'Kymi ring'. The circuit was to be used for the first time this season in MotoGP, but the coronavirus threw a spanner in the works.

The circuit is located some 110 kilometres north of Finland's capital, Helsinki. On 19 August 2019 the Kymi Ring was officially opened with a MotoGP test. This test was held in preparation for the first Grand Prix on the circuit.

"Beautiful circuit

In an interview on YouTube, the Mercedes driver says the following about this circuit: "During the lockdown period I was able to go to the circuit once to do some laps. It really is a beautiful circuit, they did a good job. It's logical that MotoGP was cancelled this year, but in the future I hope we can race there".

"There may be some buildings missing now to make it suitable for Formula 1, but never say never. It is a nice circuit with a good flow. It is quite technical, to be honest. A bit of everything is there, you go up and down, low and high speed corners and also a long straight. Hopefully one day we will be able to race there".
