Valtteri Bottas has targeted the 2018 world championship, just as his high-profile teammate Lewis Hamilton begins to struggle. After failing to win in Australia and Bahrain, reigning world champion Hamilton’s season hit a low in China as both he and Mercedes struggled.
“Both on my side but also as a team, we’ve been underperforming,” he said. “From my side it was a disaster. I’ll have to look at it so I can stop losing points and get back to my normal performance level,” Hamilton added.
But Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas managed to finish second in China, and he also almost won in Bahrain.
