BMW motorsport director Gerhard Berger thinks Juan Pablo Montoya should concentrate on working on his own weaknesses instead of looking at teammate Ralf Schumacher or Jacques Villeneuve's achievements.
The Colombian has only managed to finish one out of eight races this season, coming second at the Spanish Grand Prix , and he has crashed out of the last two Grands Prix in Monaco and Canada.
Berger, former Grand Prix winner, believes Montoya should look at his own displays and try to solve his problems instead of trying to emulate other drivers with more experience.
"I don't think he should look to Ralf or Villeneuve or to anywhere except himself and try to figure out where his weaknesses are," said Berger. "It's repeating week-to-week. He should just face up to how difficult Formula One is, because there are some very competitive teams and drivers out there."
Montoya's teammate Schumacher has scored two wins so far this season, and has outqualified the Colombian in all but one races.
