Valtteri Bottas believes that Alfa Romeo needs to be right behind the leaders in the pecking order.

Alfa Romeo is currently 6th in the Constructors’ Championship with 9 points scored. However, Bottas thinks that the team should aim for better results.

“I think that [being behind Red Bull and Ferrari] needs to be the target now,” he said.

“We seem to be more or less in the same place [in Saudi Arabia as in] Bahrain, even though I thought this could be maybe more difficult.

“So yeah, absolutely, I think aiming to be the best of the rest is a good motivation, good target. Hopefully, eventually [I] can fight for fifth position in the race. That would be a good step for us.”
