Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas will be targeting nothing but a victory when he competes at the British Grand Prix
The Finnish star finished 11th in last year's British Grand Prix after suffering a tyre puncture when running second on Lap 50 of 52, and he was forced into a pit-stop.
Bottas has been inconsistent in the current campaign having finished second in the most recent race which was the Austrian Grand Prix on July 4.

Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing-Honda won the Austrian Grand Prix which was the ninth round of the 2021 season. 
While Lando Norris of McLaren-Mercedes finished third as he continues to enjoy his breakout season in Formula One.
Verstappen remains at the top of the Drivers' Championship standings and he is followed by Hamilton and Sergio Perez of Red Bull Racing respectively.
Bottas is still placed fifth on the standings and he will be eager to move back into the top three positions by winning the British Grand Prix.

The 31-year-old stated that he was taking positives from the Austrian Grand Prix and he explained why Mercedes should be satisfied with their performance. 
"Yes for me personally, of course [I finished] one place better than last week and I started from fifth, so I think, as a team, we got some decent points considering the gap we have to Red Bull in terms of pure pace," Bottas said.
"So for me, it’s nice to be on the podium again in second place. I think it was really [the maximum] we could get today."
Red Bull Racing-Honda are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they were followed by Mercedes and McLaren-Mercedes respectively.
