Bottas satisfied with exploits
Valtteri Bottas believes he is having his best season "performance-wise" but the Mercedes man wants to be more consistent.
The Finn sits second in the Drivers' Championship after winning two races but he hasn't claimed a chequered flag since crossing the line at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on April 28.
He does boast a further seven podium finishes but isn't likely to mount a serious challenge for the world title with teammate Lewis Hamilton sitting 62 points clear at the summit.
Bottas has been pleased with his exploits on the whole but feels he must be more consistent if he is to push Hamilton in the future.
"The positives are that this has been my best season performance-wise, I keep getting better," Bottas said.
"Qualifying has been good, racing is getting better and better but, obviously [in Hungary] I can't get a proper read of how good my pace was, because it was a completely different race for me.
"That's the positive and the negative is that there have still been some races where we lost some opportunities.
"Sometimes it was us, as a team, and sometimes it was me. So we're still chasing the consistency in getting those results and in the last few races it has not been there."
