Bottas dedicates Melbourne win to Charlie Whiting

Valtteri Bottas dedicates Australian Grand Prix victory to F1 race director Charlie Whiting following his tragic passing. 

Valtteri Bottas has dedicated his Australian Grand Prix victory to Formula 1 race director Charlie Whiting, who died days before the 2019 season-opener.

Whiting, who had served as F1’s race director and the sport’s chief safety delegate since 1997 following a career as an engineer at Hesketh and Brabham, died overnight as a result of a pulmonary embolism after arriving at the Melbourne circuit on Wednesday.

Bottas briefly paused the post-race FIA drivers’ press conference on Sunday to pay tribute to the long-serving and respected 66-year-old.

“I just want to say: thank you Charlie,” Bottas said.

“This win is for Charlie and all his work for Formula 1. He’s done massive amounts. What he’s done, it means a lot to all us drivers.”

It was one of many tributes held throughout the race weekend, with F1 drivers and team personnel taking part in a one-minute silence prior to the start of the race.

Black armbands had been worn as a mark as respect, while a number of teams displayed tributes on their cars.

Bottas leads the drivers’ championship by eight points from Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton following his commanding victory in Australia.
