GP Italy: Williams recovers in Monza the role of the fourth team


Williams becomes the fourth team in the constructors ‘ fruit of the good work at Monza. Training british took advantage of to the perfection the bounties of his car and the power unit Mercedes to overcome the double pilots of Force India, as Valtteri Bottas (6th) got beat Sergio Perez and Felipe Massa (9th) did the same with Nico H├╝lkenberg. All in all, Williams comes out with three points advantage over Force India in Monza in a race that Bottas was the great asset of the team in his fight with Daniel Ricciardo.

Valtteri Bottas did catch a career pretty solid that led him to embed itself between the two Red Bull to sign the sixth final position. However, the finn showed a certain sense of disappointment that in mind, I had goals far more ambitious: Expected a little more in the race today. I set a goal, to finish on the podium, but no I ended up having the pace that you could expect. I had to push and to force the tires to ensure my position and that meant that at the end of the race I was struggling with the car”.

In this line, Bottas classifies the appointment of Monza as disappointing on a personal level, even if the good result for the team arranges a little the final balance: The pure pace today has not been good, but in general we leave Monza with a positive result for the team, again taking fourth place in the constructors’. This position gives us a bit of confidence and demonstrates definitively that we can retain this fourth position if we continue doing things well“.


Philip had a career quite more complicated than that of Bottas, maybe you still immersed in the announcement of his departure from Formula 1. The brazilian was very aggressive at the start and then struggled with different rivals during almost the entire test: “I Think it was a good race, although we didn’t have the pace that we expected with the soft tyre. My career started after changing the tyres superblandos, because at that point we have a good tempo with which to fight”.

In this line, the brazilian considered that: “If we had been able to have for more laps on these tyres, then I am sure that the final position would have been better. I’m still happy because in his whole we have achieved enough points to take the fourth place in the constructors ‘again and that is great news”.
