Felipe Massa suffered a bittersweet in Austrian Grand Prix today, finally took his best finish of the season in fourth place but failing to alter pole position into a podium finish.
Massa admitted he was disappointed to drop from starting on pole to finish fourth.
“We had a good fight with the Mercedes but it was clear we were never going to win,” he said.
“I had to manage my tyres the whole race and also struggled with traffic. To stop first and come back out fourth is a bit disappointing but that’s racing.”
“It was a positive weekend for the whole team and an emotional one as well. The main thing is that we got 27 points which means we move up in the Constructors’ Championship. We have progressed a lot but there still work to do to close the gap to Mercedes.” He added
