Valtteri Bottas strips naked

Finnish racing driver Valtteri Bottas has earned a reputation for shedding his clothes on social media, showing off his athletic physique.

Valtteri Bottas has, once again, embraced a playful and carefree persona on social media by sharing a nude photo on Instagram. 

This isn’t the first time the Finnish driver has bared it all, as he previously posted similar pictures, including one to celebrate mid-summer in Finland. 

Bottas’ unreserved social media presence has garnered attention, and he even commemorated his infamous “bum post” from the 2022 F1 season by gifting Lewis Hamilton a canvas print of the viral moment.

In the latest chapter of his social media escapades, Bottas, often seen alongside his partner Tiffany Cromwell, a cycling enthusiast, has shed his inhibitions along with his clothes.

Bottas has been embracing a more relaxed attitude since leaving Mercedes, although his newfound freedom has not translated to success on track.

Joining Alfa Romeo in 2022, Bottas dropped from P3 the previous season to P10 in the Drivers’ Standings, only taking home 49 points.

In 2023, Bottas could be looking at an even worse performance, currently only having managed two points finishes, taking home 4 points in Bahrain and 1 in Canada.

The disappointing haul of points has left Alfa Romeo in P9 of the Constructors’ Standings, behind Haas and only slightly ahead of AlphaTauri.

With Alfa Romeo set to begin its formal transition towards the Audi F1 team in 2026, Bottas might be in the closing days of his career in Formula 1.

Audi have already reportedly indicated their desire to bring in new talent to the team, targeting Carlos Sainz and German talent, such as Mick Schumacher.
