Williams' deputy team principal is keen to see Valtteri Bottas take his first win with the British team.

The Finn's future is up in the air at the moment, with William yet to announce their 2017 driver lineup, and Bottas himself reportedly negotiating with Renault over a move to the factory team.

However, Williams' comments to Autosport drop the strongest hint yet that Williams could be set to keep their star driver.

"As I keep saying to him, I can't wait to give him a car that he can win a race in," she said. "He started his career with us, he has given us a lot of his time, he's stuck by us and he's been loyal to the team in good times and bad."

"So I want Williams to be the team that gives him his first race win - that is the objective at the moment," Williams added. "He has been strong this year, but he always is."
