The Williams driver Felipe Massa has summed up the results of Friday’s training Grand Prix of Russia, which he completed in seventh place.
“A good day for us, – quotes the Mass of the press-service of Williams. The car looked good on track both in the morning and afternoon, on short and long series of circles, firmed and new tires. So I’m quite happy with the balance and tires. The wear is very low, much lower than on the other tracks, which is good for our team on the race distance.
I’m happy today and hope we will have a good weekend, but we’ll see.”
Partner of the Brazilian lance Stroll, who showed 19-th result in the second exercise, added: “a Bit of a strange situation, since you complete a lap, the tires begin to lose grip and then gain it again. Therefore, we need to understand how to achieve maximum efficiency from the tyres on a fast lap.
We can add, first and foremost, this applies to my statement, because I for the first time on this track. I just wish the car was customized according to my wishes.
Today I used the Ultrasoft tyres, saving them for Saturday. This will give me a better feel of the car. I will try to show good result.
We have not yet determined the strategy for the race, but the level of grip is low and the wear is not too large. Therefore, we need to understand which approach is better”.
