Williams started the Canadian GP with Felipe Massa in a great position to get a good result. However, the accident of the brazilian in the first round caused that all the responsibility off you have to stop on the men of Lance Stroll. In his first race at home, before your public, Stroll responded and managed to reach the ninth position. Two points which premiered the winners of Lance Stroll in Formula 1 and that leave a very good taste for the canadian, for them in Montreal and for removing the criticisms that accompany him from the beginning of the season.
Lance Stroll was really happy after getting their first two points in the World: “I Am happy for me, for the team and for all the world. The balance of the car was very good during the whole race. I felt very good. I knew that we had a good speed in a straight line, so I chose my overtaking with care, choosing the right time. Maybe some of them could have gone any around before, but it was risky and I preferred to be patient“.
“James, my engineer, gave me good information throughout the race to know what was happening around. We had the head cold and we ended up ninth. It was a question of putting everything in its place and get it all functioning without problems. We have been able to ride at a pace that we really have. It is difficult to explain that means to me to be able to finish in the points and to see so many flags canadian in this race” he concluded Stroll.
Much more ephemeral was the career of Felipe Massa. The brazilian, who lost two positions in the output with the Force India, I came to the curve 3 in ninth position. In that time, Massa has been surprised by a strong blow of Carlos Sainz, who arrived with his car completely out of control after hitting Grosjean: “I Am very disappointed to be out of the race just after three curves. On this occasion I was a complete passenger in this collision. I think that Sainz was beaten by someone, but in the end his car was the one that hit me“.
“it Is a pity to finish the race as well, especially when you have a car that has been competitive throughout the weekend. I’m convinced I could have gotten here a good amount of points” lamented the brazilian.
