Wolff feels Bottas must work on technical fault
Mercedes boss Toto Wolff feels Valtteri Bottas must work out how to use the slipstream better in order to make a passing manoeuvre.
After Lewis Hamilton's tyre degradation meant he could no longer chase down race leader Charles Leclerc in Sunday's Italian Grand Prix, Mercedes team-mate Bottas set off in pursuit of the young man from Monaco.
The Finn came close but could not get past the Ferrari ace, who went on to take the chequered flag for his second consecutive victory.
Bottas ran deep into the first chicane with three laps to go as he pushed it to the limit to try and get past, ending his chances of winning the race in Monza.
Wolff believes that the incident highlighted just what his driver needs to improve on.
"It looks like he struggles a little bit when he gets in the wake of the car, to extract the maximum," he said. "Lewis in that position is able to somehow get closer and put himself in a position to go for a move.
"It's something he's got to work on. But on the positive side, his racing was great. He was really fast. Probably in pure race time, the fastest car."
