Bottas laments Williams lack of pace

Bottas laments Williams lack of pace

Williams woes continued as they marked their 600th grand prix weekend with both drivers failing to make it into Q2.

Valtteri Bottas and Pastor Maldonado narrowly missed the cut for Saturday's second qualifying session for the German GP.

While Bottas 1:31.691 was 0.012s slower than the mark, Maldonado, who had a KERS issue earlier in the day, fell short by 0.26s.

The duo will start the team's 600th grand prix 17th and 18th on the grid.

And worryingly for Williams, Bottas reckons he got the most of his FW35 that he could on Saturday afternoon.

"We got the most out of the car this afternoon," said the Finnish rookie, who like his team-mate has yet to score a single point this season.

"Things were very close between me and Pastor, but we don't have the pace at the moment to progress any further.

"The track temperatures are higher and it's a bit windier today which meant that every tenth or hundredth counted, resulting in a very close session.

"We need to keep pushing and do what we can in the race tomorrow."
