Under fire Felipe Massa performed well in both practice session in Monaco today. The Brazilian set sixth quickest in first free practice and third fastest in second free practice and its ahead of his team-mate Fernando Alonso.
Massa says that he is happy with the Monaco Thursday practice sessions and also he added that hard to make predictions about qualifying.
“We weren’t able to do as much running as we would have liked because of the light rain that fell this afternoon, but all the same, I am happy with the way things went on this Monaco Thursday. “ Massa said.
“The car seemed to me to be okay right from the start of the first session, with a good balance in all conditions and with slightly better traction than we had expected. Even when we ran the Intermediates in the final part of the second session, the feeling was still positive. “
“As for the tyres, we didn’t even fit the Supersoft, therefore we can’t say anything about their behaviour, while the Softs worked well, also in terms of their degradation. Sure, there is still plenty of work to do to fine tune all the set-up details, but we have an extra day to think about what to do to improve in this area. “
“It’s hard to make predictions about qualifying and, even more so for the race, but definitely we can say the first day of free practice can be considered a positive one.”
