Speaking to RacingNews365 about the season and their targets moving forwards, the Italian was optimistic about the teams' capabilities.
“I'm disappointed with this year's result, because I don't think it reflects our potential,” he said.
“It also doesn't match our ambitions or season targets so far. The disappointment is shared throughout the team and it's not like I'm pointing fingers at people.
"We have already started taking some important decisions for next year in terms of car design, because next year's car for most teams will be not just our contender for 2025 but will be the basis for the 2025 car there will be a big carry over of parts."
Having continuity with their driver lineup should assist the team from a development perspective.
Both Bottas and Zhou know the weaknesses of the car and will be able to use their experience to help push the team forwards as a new era begins for Swiss outfit.
