Pilot Williams Felipe Massa was unhappy with the fact that most of the time allotted for free practice in Japan, he had to sit in the boxes.
In the first session on the track the red flags came out because of the accident of Carlos Sainz, and in the afternoon at Suzuka was hit by heavy rain.
“Honestly, the day was not the most interesting, – said Massa, who finished in 16th place in the table of results first training. First impression from the car was good, but still our day wasn’t difficult.
It was interesting to see how a good car in the rain, but I managed to ride only one lap – on the path there was too much standing water. Thus, for most of the day we had to wait.”
Lance Stroll, who showed the 14th time of the day, said: “It was a good first day of the weekend. I confidently felt the car in the morning session and enjoyed her piloting on Suzuka.
After lunch the conditions were not the best – we traveled quite a bit laps of the track the rain”.
