Williams must fix Monaco slump

Valtteri Bottas has urged Williams to get to the bottom of its Monaco slump.

The British team's dip in performance last weekend came at an awkward time, as Bottas is being strongly linked with a move elsewhere, possibly to Ferrari.

"We must learn from this weekend," the 25-year-old driver said, after an uncharacteristically poor weekend for Williams on the streets of Monaco.

Actually, Williams also struggled at the famous race a year ago, Bottas said.

"This is the second year in succession that we have had a problem here," he is quoted by Finland's Turun Sanomat newspaper.

"We have to sort this out, because it would be silly to make the same mistakes in the future.

"If we want to be a top team, we cannot afford to have races like this where we are not at our level," Bottas added.

"I'm not worried," he insisted, "because now we are going back to the normal circuits, and we were strong in Canada last year and have some upgrades as well."
