Pilot Williams Felipe Massa was unhappy with the first day of racing weekend in Melbourne.
After lunch, it FW38 there is a problem, because of which he ran only six laps.
“Frankly, we expected more from the start of the day: I couldn’t finish the second training session after only six laps,’ said Felipe. – The track was still quite dirty, and all of a sudden on the machine experiencing the problem. I switched to neutral and couldn’t shift gears. This meant that there was lost opportunity to try out the tires Ultrasoft and train racing segments.
It’s a shame that in Barcelona, we traveled thousands of kilometers, and problems arose here. On the other hand, I don’t think it’s anything serious. I hope that tomorrow everything will be fine”.
F1 debutant lance Stroll showed the 16th time in the second practice.
“For me, this day went well – said the canadian. – I drove a lot of circles, having become acquainted with the track. I don’t know this track, so I can immediately go to maximum. We need to understand its configuration, what I was doing. Honestly, I liked it.
The second workout was a bit nervous: the first trip to the track was OK, but then the yellow flags came out, which I was forced to slow down on a fast lap. We are unable to pass a quick circle on Ultrasoft.
But it was only training. I can still add”.
