Deputy head Williams Claire Williams said that while the team is in no hurry with the decision about a new contract Felipe Massa.
At the beginning of this year, the Brazilian veteran refused to complete the career and agreed to replace in the team from grove gone to Mercedes, Valtteri Bottas, becoming a partner and mentor to rookie lance Stroll.
“Felipe did an amazing job. He kindly accepted our offer to come back and really lived up to its hope, – quotes Williams F1i. – Yes, the last few races turned out to be his heavy. In particular, he was forced to skip the stage in Hungary because of poor health. But together we survived this difficult period and are confidently looking forward to the rest of the season. Let’s see what will happen next.
Unfortunately, we must admit that we hardly can catch up with Force India in the Cup of designers, therefore, need to focus on the protection of the fifth position, because behind a lot of teams that would be ahead of us. It is to this task we must now direct our full attention, and the lineup of pilots for next season will have time to think.”
