Bottas doesn't rule out potential US switch after F1

Valtteri Bottas hasn't ruled out a move stateside once his F1 career ends, with eyes on IndyCar.

Valtteri Bottas says he is interested in potentially making a switch to IndyCar once his Grand Prix racing career in Formula 1 is over.

10-time race winner Bottas was positive towards the idea of becoming the latest member of the former F1 driver camp to head to IndyCar after being squeezed out of a seat.

In recent years, the likes of Romain Grosjean, Marcus Ericsson and (for one race in 2021) Kevin Magnussen had raced in the series, with Grosjean collecting a number podiums, with Ericsson also picking up a couple of wins - including the 2022 Indy 500 and was a title contender.

And given the relative competitiveness of IndyCar, Bottas believes a switch could be something he is interested in.

"Maybe I'll be racing in the US [in the future]," he told the Kevin Clark podcast at the United States Grand Prix.

"IndyCar is quite interesting, the tracks are nice and the racing seems really real.

"It's been gaining popularity, at least in Europe, so let's see."
