Valtteri Bottas has found extreme ways to prepare for big Formula One races

The Alfa Romeo driver shared a clip on Instagram showing him setting the temperature to 100 degrees Celsius and watering the coal.

This is not the first time Bottas has found an extreme way to prepare for a big race.

The star driver did the same thing in May when he swum in the ice-cold waters of Aspen.

Bottas has been enjoying a new lease of life ever since he left Mercedes for Alfa Romeo earlier this year.

The 33-year-old revealed he almost quit F1 in 2018 while team-mates with Sir Lewis Hamilton.

Bottas said: “At the end of 2018, I almost stopped, it was so close.

“Just because of the fact that I couldn’t understand and take the fact that I couldn’t beat Lewis in those two years.

“I put so much pressure on myself. Towards the end of 2018, especially when I started to have the support role in the team, I really couldn’t take it, I really struggled. It was not fun.

“The last four or five races of 2018 were more painful because you should enjoy F1 and it is pretty cool, but it wasn’t that at all.

“So I had a good break between the two seasons and really had to think things through.”
