Valtteri Bottas praised the increasing strength of his Williams team after he finished a career-best second at the British Grand Prix.

Despite starting from a lowly 15th on the grid, Bottas carved his way past his rivals to move into the podium positions, where he remained to collect second.

"We are definitely a stronger team than where we were in Melbourne, or compared to last year or two years before," he said.

"We are getting stronger, [it] won't be easy to get on the podium in every race, it’ll be more race by race, but we are going in the right way.

"Myself, I am improving all the time and as a team we aim to be stronger every single race."

Bottas knew Williams's race pace was good but he admits he did not expect to finish so highly.

"Our prediction was race pace would be strong, also Red Bull we thought would be quicker than us and Ferrari close to our pace," he said.

"So we knew the position we were starting wasn’t going to be that easy, we weren’t thinking about [the] podium, just getting in the points."

"Definitely a positive start that things started to go well, tyre life was no limitation. Strategy, the guys did a really good job, we switched it during the running. Positive surprise, really happy."
