Bottas: I prefer not to think about lagging behind Hamilton at all

Bottas: I prefer not to think about lagging behind Hamilton at all thumbnail

Valtteri Bottas acknowledges that his lag behind teammate Lewis Hamilton is far greater than he would have wished. As a result, the Finn prefers to focus on each individual race, but rather than think about the big difference in the total.

After a great start to the season, Bottas has been in a bit of a slump lately, with his team-mate Lewis Hamilton making up big 62 points after half the season.

The Finnish racer admits that he did not expect such a high backlog:

“The backlog is much larger than I would have liked, but the situation is just as it is right now. It's hard to change anything now, so I prefer not to think about it. There are many races left to the end and I will try to focus on each race individually. ”
