Massa: Williams will be second best team in German GP

Felipe Massa believes that Williams continues the strong performance again at the next weekend’s German Grand Prix, and set victory as second quickest team ahead of the all-dominant Mercedes GP.

The Brazilian was forced out from the British Grand Prix after getting caught up in Raikkonen’s crash on the opening lap and his teammate Valtteri Bottas grabbed to second place in the race, and Massa is very confident that this proves the team’s position as second quickest to only Mercedes.

“I think honestly the car was so competitive during the race,” he told media.”We couldn’t be so competitive during practice as we changed something on the set-up which was not positive and then we went back to the car we had in Austria and it was competitive in the race.

“Unfortunately not for me as I couldn’t do the race but it was a very positive result for us as it shows the car was the quickest car in Canada, apart from Mercedes, second quickest in Austria and even here, so it’s really positive for us so I hope we get to Germany and have the second quickest team. This can be very important to recuperate the points and put us in the big fight for the top three position on the constructors’ championship.

“I think Germany is a little bit more similar to maybe between here [Silverstone] and Canada, Hungary is different, the engine counts a lot less in Hungary, a lot of corners where you need a good downforce,” he said.
“Maybe it can be the car can be more competitive in Germany than Hungary but new things for Hungary should make the car better for this type of track so I hope we can be competitive everywhere from now.”
