Valtteri Bottas gets naked again for Midsummer celebration having with previous nude shot given to Lewis Hamilton

Valtteri Bottas has spent his midsummer break in Finland the only way he knows how, by taking his kit off.

Formula 1 fans are getting increasingly used to seeing the Alfa Romeo driver in his natural element, and this season is no different.

Posting a shot from behind of him strolling through a stream in the nude, he captioned it ‘happy midsummer’.

His old team Mercedes were quick to reply, writing: “Cracking shot, VB” while his Alfa teammate Zhou Guanyu simply commented with a face palm emoji.

It’s not the first time Bottas has attempted to break the internet with a naked shot, with a previous effort becoming so iconic that Lewis Hamilton got a signed copy.

The two former teammates linked up last season for the handover, with Hamilton in hysterics saying: “Not that I don’t have stuff to remember you by… but what were you doing?!”

There is a heartwarming side to things too, with Bottas selling 5,000 of the prints in 24 hours, raising £43,000 for charity.

The 10-time race-winner had previously debuted his bare behind on Netflix’s Drive to Survive, having a sauna back home with his trainer ‘Finnish style’.

That set the groundwork for his money making charity shot, but even Bottas himself was a bit surprised by the success.

“I was seeing some photos of people taking pictures, some have it in their living room or kitchen or bedroom,” he said.

“What is incredible is that’s like the power of social media. Like we got €50,000 for charity in 24 hours with a picture of somebody’s bum like this.

“It’s crazy. I don’t quite get it. But, you know, we make good.”
