the differences of other Great Prizes, Williams seems to be in a position to fight for points with solvency from the first day, and to be able to do battle at Force India.
And Valtteri Bottas seems to be the clear leader of the team after having completed the two sessions among the eight best of the times table. For the Finnish, it has been a “good day. Definitely, we still have much work to do with the balance. The track was obviously improving a lot, so feeling about the car was better and better with each lap. The long runs seemed to be competitive with the superblando and the environment, so I hope that we are on track to a good weekend for us. We still have to make sure we work hard tonight to make the changes that we need to perform to get a better performance”, commented Bottas.
Your companion Felipe Massa had more difficulties to extract the best out of the new tyres, especially for low temperatures and graining. But that did not prevent him from making the rounds for the top ten positions and have hopes of face-to-the Saturday, on the that understanding the tyres will be vital to move closer to his team-mate. “it Was very difficult to understand the tyres today. The track had very little grip, but is improving every time we shoot. You can go out and have no grip, but suddenly at the end of the shoot the grip improves. Therefore, I believe that understanding the tyres this weekend will be very important to the final outcome of the race. I was not happy with the result of the new tires, but I was happy on long runs. We just need to work on understanding everything”.
