Bottas wants more from Williams

Bottas wants more from Williams

Valtteri Bottas is somewhat disappointed with the start Williams have made to the season, even though he has scored 24 points in the Drivers' Championship.

Williams have consistently been one of the quickest teams behind Mercedes throughout pre-season and the first four races of the year, but doesn't quite have the results to show for it.

The best finish so far this year is a fifth place in the season-opener in Melbourne, where the Finn finished behind Nico Rosberg, Kevin Magnussen, Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso.

Speaking to crash.net in an exclusive interview, Bottas admitted that he is pleased to have scored points in every race so far this year, but added that he is eager to improve his finishing positions.

"You always want more," he told crash.net when asked if he is satisfied with his 24-haul so far this year.

"It's still positive being consistently in the points but you always want more. I think we need to keep pushing really and keep solving the problems so we can try again next time."

While Williams are clearly an improving team, Bottas believes he has become a better driver as well this year.

"My overall technical understanding; this season especially you learn so much from the testing and the first few races. And I think also some racing situations now I have a bit more experience in those," he continued.

"So maybe those two things are the main things but you keep getting better at everything so it's difficult to say."
