Le Castellet, France - Valtteri Bottas can still challenge runaway leader Lewis Hamilton for the Formula One title but he needs to adapt his driving style to do it, according to Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff.
The Finn finished runner-up in Sunday's French Grand Prix, a distant 18 seconds behind his team-mate, and is 36 points adrift in the standings after eight races.
He has won twice this season - leading the championship after the opener in Australia and then taking victory in Azerbaijan.
But the prospects of a real title bid have faltered since Baku, with Hamilton winning four races in a row and six of the last seven.
The Finn won no races last year, as Hamilton romped to the title, and took most of the winter getting himself back into the right state of mind before returning re-energised in Melbourne as 'Bottas 2.0'.
