Bottas has had a short off-season with a car not developed to him and updated likely to the other driver's liking above his.

But don't get me wrong, rosberg was really good and prob better than he was given credit for.
All very very valid points.

That's fair.

It hasn't been a too bad first season for Valterri, hopefully he'll be able to do better next season. It will be a make or break season for him

He was looking really promising when he won in Austria, since then he has gone walkabout, not an encouraging sign.

Wolff puts it down to a lack of aggressiveness.

'Valtteri has recovered slowly but still needs the tick of a killer'

He's not anywhere near aggressive enough and unlikely to make himself be something he's not. He made no attempt to tough it out with Vettel at the start in Brazil when there was scope. The other drivers know he's a soft touch.

He does need to get his elbows out more if he's gonna be a consistent challenger

Some of bottas' non-aggressiveness could come down to making sure to take extra care of the cars and not wreck out too much with his new team. If he had had a string of wrecks or damage from contact throughout the year the team could have soured on him for that.
