How did you first get involved with Oris?
Oris has been a team partner with Williams for 14 years, so it’s a long-term partnership. I first came into contact with the brand when I started as a test driver for the Williams team in 2010. Now that I am in my fourth season as a racing driver, I would say I have really discovered Oris by myself.
How does the collaboration work with Oris?
We have a lot of races, obviously, and this is a great opportunity for the people from Oris and their guests to come to the Grand Prix. Sometimes I might meet them at a Formula One track, and other times we might do some events together in different locations, and sometimes we launch a new watch. This is the first time I have visited the Oris factory and it has been very interesting to see.
What do you like about Oris personally?
Well I’ve always been a big watch fan myself and I’ve always worn a watch. I have always liked nice watches so I’m really happy that Oris is with our team! I like how sporty they are, especially the watch they made for me (Oris Williams Valtteri Bottas Limited Edition), and the Oris Williams Collection. My watch is made with carbon fiber, it’s quite light and is made of the same material they use in Formula One cars.
