Williams: 2015 Italian GP practice report


Valtteri Bottas – FP1 – 9th, FP2 – 9th

“It was a good Friday. Thankfully it stayed dry and we got through the whole plan without any issues. We were doing a lot of set-up work with the car, trying different aero, mechanical and suspension settings. Now we’ve tried a lot of different things with both cars so we have plenty of information for tomorrow to choose all the best combinations so I’m looking forward to the outcome because I think we can be competitive.”

Felipe Massa – FP1 – 8th, FP2 – 10th

“We had a positive session and I am happy with the balance and feeling of the car which is a good start to the weekend. We have to now have a look at the data and compare this to where we think our competitors are over the short and longer runs. At a first glance the car looks competitive, we just need to make sure we are ready for tomorrow.”

Rob Smedley, Head of Performance Engineering

“Today we focused on testing our specific Monza package which all seems to be working very well. We’ve had quite a substantial programme to get through in terms of performance and car specification, so it’s been busy. We’ve tested a myriad of mechanical components, new transmission developments, new suspension developments, plus other developments which we’re putting in the pipeline for the future which the team have put a lot of effort in to. The long runs were good and on low fuel we looked quite reasonable for where we usually are on a Friday. Both drivers are reporting that the balance of the cars is good so I think we’re in a positive position for the weekend.”
