Felipe Massa has said his quick return to Williams for the 2017 season was not a straightforward process.
Williams performance chief Rob Smedley believes the new aerodynamic regulations for 2017 are a perfect match for Felipe Massa.
Felipe Massa has highlighted the difficulty the F1 drivers face in overtaking this season, revealing he was “1.5 seconds faster than the Sauber” but still couldn’t pass.
Covering 168 laps on his way to the fastest time on Tuesday, Felipe Massa has urged Lance Stroll to keep the car on the track when he takes over on Wednesday.
Having experienced F1’s new aerodynamic rules in play, Lewis Hamilton says fears that overtaking will be made more difficult have been realised.
