Bottas: I've never had a good car in Monaco

Valtteri Bottas believes he has never had a car capable of winning the Monaco Grand Prix but following his start to the season and the performance of the car in the third sector of the Spanish Grand Prix, things could be about to change.

Bottas came second at the Circuit de Catalunya after being overtaken off the line by his teammate, Lewis Hamilton. The Finn has two race wins this season and has been far more competitive than his 2018 showing.

Speaking to the Official Formula 1 website Bottas spoke about his past and future chances, saying: “I feel I've never in my Formula 1 career I've never had a good car in Monaco.

“It's such a unique track, you need a very special car in terms of how it works mechanically in Monaco, with all the warps and bumps, so it's a question mark how we're going to perform there.

“But obviously from Barcelona here, Sector 3 with slow corners, it's promising… I would just hope that we have a good car there because it would be such a unique race to be fighting for the win, or win it.

“I've actually never been on the podium there so it's something I really look forward to.”
