Bottas hopes Alfa Romeo will become fourth-quickest team

Valtteri Bottas is hopeful that Alfa Romeo will get to the top 4 of the Formula 1 pecking order.

After difficult weekends in Monaco and Azerbaijan, Alfa Romeo managed to get their second double points finish of the season in Canada. After the race, Bottas set the goal for the team.

“Hopefully we can get up to a fourth best, that would be nice,” he said.

“But I think that now we’re back on the form we’ve seen earlier this year, we need to get it up [further].”

The Finn was also delighted with Alfa Romeo’s performance last Sunday: “We’re really pleased with getting double points, so it’s good for us.

“And especially towards the end [of the race], to see the actual race pace, that we could really put pressure on Alpine. I think we had more pace than them at the end, so for that I’m happy.

“When you gain places in the race from your starting position, it’s good.”
