Williams preview the Bahrain GP

Felipe Massa is looking forward to a race that he has already won twice before, while Valtteri Bottas thinks it will be great to see the cars under lights at Sakhir.

Felipe Massa: Bahrain will be different from last season, normally it's a very hot race but it's not humid like Malaysia, it's really dry which helps from a driver's physical point of view. It will be a change this year as it's a night race so we expect the temperatures to be cooler. We've been testing there in the winter so all the teams will have an idea about what set-up to use; we know what we have to focus on and where we can improve as well. Bahrain is a really nice place; I've won there twice in the past so I'm looking forward to getting back there.

Valtteri Bottas: We have had a lot of testing in Bahrain so we have more of an idea about our set-up which makes things easier. Obviously the weather will be different as it will be night, but I think it's going to be a great sight to see the cars under the lights, so I'm looking forward to that. We didn't look too bad in testing in Bahrain, so we are looking to the race as a potential for some good points.
