Wolff reveals three areas Bottas must improve to beat Hamilton
Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has highlighted three key areas that Valtteri Bottas must improve in order to challenge Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' championship. Hamilton secured a fourth consecutive race win at the French Grand Prix to open up a 36-point lead over Bottas.
Victories in Australia and Azerbaijan helped Bottas to a career-best start to a Formula 1 season, but Hamilton has stepped up the game since then.
The season is now entering a period that Hamilton typically excels in, leading to fears that the season could be reduced to a one-horse race.
However, with a few tweaks Wolff believes Bottas can still be a title contender.
"With a decent start in some of the last races he could have won two of them, and he knows that," said Wolff.
