Starting from third on the grid, Valtteri Bottas struggled and finished the Canadian Grand Prix in 14th place, dropping 11 positions from the start leaving Montreal empty handed.

In its worst start to the championship since its debut season in 1975, Williams is yet to score a point in 2013 and any hope of a point eroded after Bottas struggled to match the pace of the front runners in the first stint on the supersoft tyres.

The team admitted that the Finn’s grid position, achieved in wet conditions, was not representative of its current pace but had hoped to be able to challenge for some points.

“We fought hard to try and secure some points but ultimately we just didn’t have the pace in the car,” Bottas said. “The tyre wear in the first stint was high which made it tough to stay in the top ten.

“Nevertheless I feel like I have learnt a lot from the race and as a team we can take positives from the weekend,” he added.
