Valtteri Bottas thinks this has been his most disappointing season in Formula 1, and has been worse that his debut 2013 campaign for Williams when he finished in the points just once.
Although Bottas started 2018 strongly and was a contender for victory in Bahrain, China and Baku, he has found himself still without a win – with his best chance in Russia having been taken from him through team orders.
Reflecting on the year, Bottas admits it has fallen well below his expectations, having hoped he could have challenged for the title.
Asked if it was his most disappointing season in F1, Bottas said: “Yeah I think it is.
"For sure the first season was tough but you can’t compare. For Williams in 2013, we were fighting at the back and I felt in my first year I was kind of meeting my goals."
“Then the few seasons after I drove better and better, and then this one."
"Last year was quite different to this one. It was my first year with the team, my first year against Lewis. I remember this time last year overall for the season I was disappointed. I didn’t meet my targets."
