Bottas has been forced to watch his teammate take the last three F1 victories, and he even missed out on the podium after a terrible Canadian Grand Prix two weeks ago.
The gap to Hamilton is now 29 points, more than a whole race win so Bottas needs to improve soon, and he has no doubt he will bounce back.
He said in France: “The points gap to Lewis… it’s still manageable.
“It’s 14 races to go and that’s a lot of points, so I just need to try and get those wins now, get the big points.
“It’s super competitive [between Lewis and I] for sure this year.
“I think the momentum is going to change from one to another during the year, and for different reasons, I haven’t been quite able to maximise the points in the last two races.
“But nothing has changed in a way, so just again, a complete reset from Montreal, move on and try again here.”
