• Valtteri Bottas finished fifth and Felipe Massa sixth in today’s Malaysian Grand Prix
• After a poor start, Valtteri benefited from an early safety car, as did Felipe who at one stage was running in fourth position
• A recovering Kimi Raikkonen jumped both drivers at the final of three pitstops as Felipe and Valtteri race wheel to wheel to the end swapping positions with just a few laps left

Rob Smedley, Head of Performance Engineering: It was a good team performance and we finished with the maximum points on offer considering the pace of the car. It was a tough race in the heat but there are areas of the package that we have to improve. We made a good recovery from a difficult Saturday and it was good to have both cars racing each other, although at one stage they were a bit too close.

Valtteri Bottas: It was a nice race in the end. I was always in the wrong place at the start and lost a lot. I made the most of the performance of the car and it was nice to be able to race Felipe at the end. We know we have some work to do, we need to learn from our mistakes and keep progressing. Some upgrades that are due shortly will hopefully be a step in the right direction.

Felipe Massa: I don’t think we had a fantastic day today. We had a small problem in the pitstop and as a result it gave Valtteri the chance to catch me, it was good to race wheel to wheel though. We got the best points we could for the team given the where the car is at the moment. (Williams-Press)
