The team Williams has lived a Friday as less discrete in Bahrain. The two pilots of the training have been focused on testing the tyres and on long runs during FP2, so that the potential of the FW38 has been partially eclipsed. This fact has not allowed Valtteri Bottas to pass the eighth place in the second free (1:32.703), while Felipe Massa has been tenth in both sessions with a best time of 1:32.873. Will be precisely Massa the manager of brand new the new morro short that Williams has prepared and you will come to Sakhir with the occasion of the FP3.
on The sidelines of the premiere of this new morro, Felipe Massa has lived a day of Friday standard. Although the brazilian has had repeated blockages of tires on the curve 10, the brazilian believes that the balance has not been bad, as they have been able to test the performance of the FW38 with different tyres and fuel loads: “it Has been a Friday regular for us. We have focused on trying to understand the balance of the car, how it behaves with different tires. We have completed some long runs at the end. Today we have collected a lot of information and now we will try to understand in order to improve tomorrow”.
For his part, Valtteri Bottas has also been shown to quite
practical to the end of the FP2: “We managed to complete our
program as we had planned, so it’s been a good day.
car has behaved better in free 2 with temperatures more
low and with the lower intensity of the wind. This is good because
we needed the car to be at his best level at the same time of
day on which disputaremos qualifying and the race. We can still
improve, but what is encouraging is the consistency that we have shown
on long runs with rubber middle“.
In reference to this new
front chin spoiler premiere of Felipe Massa in FP3, Bottas understand
the decision to deliver to your partner is the only morro available: “Massa
is in front of me in the points, by what logic this decision.
It is always good for the team to test a new piece immediately. So
soon as you get this improvement, you have to put in the car. If
about one or two spoilers, this is how it is“.
