Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas will be eager to clinch his second win of the 2020 season at the Belgian Grand Prix title on August 30.
 
The Finnish driver has never won the Belgian Grand Prix before and he will be hoping to win it for the first time this weekend. 
 
Bottas, who has won eight Formula One races, three in 2017, four in 2019 and one in 2020, finished third in last year's Belgian Grand Prix.

The enthralling race was won by Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc with Bottas' teammate Lewis Hamilton finishing second.
 
Bottas won the first race of the 2020 season (Austrian Grand Prix), but he finished third at the most recent one which was the Spanish Grand Prix on August 16.
 
The 30-year-old is currently placed third on the World Drivers' Championship standings having accumulated 89 points from six races.
 
The reigning Formula One world champion Hamilton is placed at the top of the standings with 132 points, while second-placed Max Verstappen of Red Bull has 95 points.

Bottas will move into second place behind Hamilton if he wins this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.
 
However, the 2019 Formula One runners-up believes that Hamilton is destined to win this season's world title 

"I can see again the championship drifting away. We'll take a couple of days to look at everything and see what went wrong," Bottas said.

"Obviously at this point, [it's] very disappointing. I know I'll always bounce back, and no doubt in Spa, as always, I'll be in full mental health, giving everything I have.

"But for now, I just want to be somewhere else than here right now."

Mercedes are placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed Racing Point-BWT Mercedes.
