Valtteri Bottas: Mercedes new man looks to emulate Finnish heroes

The Finn's four seasons at Williams yielded nine podium finishes, but no wins, in 77 starts -- though that could (and should) change this year.

With the fastest and most reliable car on the F1 grid, Bottas is expected to push his new teammate, three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, throughout the 20-race calendar.

'I feel like I have plenty to prove, not much to lose ... more to win -- I can't wait,' Bottas told CNN's The Circuit.

If Bottas can clinch his first world title this year, he will become the fourth driver from Finland after Keke Rosberg (1982), Mika Hakkinen (1998, 1999) and Kimi Raikkonen (2007) to do so -- an incredible feat for a country of 5.5 million people.

Hakkinen has served as both hero and mentor -- the former McLaren star helped steer Bottas' career through the junior ranks.
