As teams asses their performances and reflect on the recently concluded Bahrain Grand Prix, Williams driver Felipe Massa expressed his disappointment of finishing 8th on Sunday.

The Brazilian, who started of the race in P7, was delighted he was able to move the grid to P2 after the first lap. However, as the race progressed Massa dropped down into P8, something he was deeply disappointed with.

The Former Ferrari man blasted the teams' strategy as they were one of the few constructors to opt for a two-stop strategy while most of the front runners made three stops during the race in Sakhir.

"I was so happy after corner one, that I went from seventh to second," he told Motorsport.com. "And I'm so disappointed that I finished eighth in the race.

"Definitely our strategy didn't work, to go for two stops compared to all of the other teams.

"I'm disappointed, it was a race where we were supposed to score more points, it was a race to learn a little bit more about the front wing. I think we couldn't do any of them, so we scored little points.

"I think the race pace on the medium tyres was really disappointing compared to the race pace from the other cars. The first stint was OK, the supersoft feeling, but after not."
