Alfa Romeo driver Valteri Bottas commented on the 12th place in the qualification of Monaco.
“It simply came to our notice then. I think the performance of the car should be better. This may be related to the route. I thought that our car would be perfect for Monaco, but it turned out the other way around. Then there will be a street track in Baku, I still think that our car is suitable for such GP, just not quite for Monaco.
I actually felt like I was getting a good rhythm, even though I missed one session. But we adjusted the car well, I felt confident. I think we just weren’t fast enough here, which is quite strange, because it seemed to me that we would be fast here. It will be necessary to understand everything, “Bottas said.
