Massa wants 'a lot better results'

Massa wants 'a lot better results'

Felipe Massa had hoped for better in his first few races with Williams, conceding that his results should have been "much better."

Joining Williams from Ferrari, the Brazilian has had a bit of bad luck along the way which has cost him points.

As such his best results with the Grove team have been a hat-trick of P7s while team-mate Valtteri Bottas already has two fifth-placed finishes.

Their combined points, though, have put Williams on 52 points, the same number that McLaren have scored.

Massa, though, had hoped for better.

"No," he said when asked if his results were 'in line with your expectations'.

"Definitely I think I didn't have great results until now. It should be much better than what I had until now.

"So I had not very great races, starting with the race, where I didn't get to corner two and you know in Bahrain I was fighting for third, fourth the whole race and then I lost a lot of positions because of the safety car.

"So I think it was not very great results but I'm sure we can do much better and I hope this track can be also a bit better for our car compared to Monaco, compared to other tracks.

"So really looking forward that we can have a lot better results, starting here in Montreal, a lot better than seventh I hope."

And the Williams driver will have an added advantage this weekend as the Grove team is now powered by Mercedes, whose teams are expected to dominate in Montreal.

"Definitely it can be a good track for most of the cars that are using Mercedes (engines) so I think maybe we will see even maybe a big difference compared to Mercedes and the other teams because the engine is amazing, it's been a very good job done by Mercedes and they have a good car under braking and everything, so for sure maybe we can see maybe even a big difference."
