Bottas still chasing consistency

Valtteri Bottas may not have won a race since the fourth round of the season in Azerbaijan, but the Finn still believes that this has been his strongest season in Formula 1.

Bottas began the new season as a different beast, and had the upper hand over teammate Lewis Hamilton following the race in Baku.

However, since then, his form has deteriorated but he still believes he is having his best season in the sport.

Bottas is quoted by Motorsportweek.com as saying: “The positives are that this has been my best season performance-wise, I keep getting better.

“Qualifying has been good, racing is getting better and better but, obviously [in Hungary] I can’t get a proper read of how good my pace was, because it was a completely different race for me.

“That’s the positive and the negative is that there have still been some races where we lost some opportunities.

“Sometimes it was us, as a team, and sometimes it was me. So we’re still chasing the consistency in getting those results and in the last few races it has not been there.”
