Speaking about their position and efforts, Bottas mentioned: “Everyone just wants points. Everyone has the right mentality. We know that. We didn’t succeed in the last event or in the last couple of events, but it’s important to get together, you know, to make sure that we all work as a team towards the same goal.”
Bottas also shared ambitions for the remainder of the year’s Grand Prix races and expressed hope to avoid slipping to tenth place. The racing enthusiast is determined to work with his team and contribute to the pursuit of their common goal. He remains focused on making strides for Alfa Romeo and securing more points in the coming races, despite the obstacles.
