Williams preview the Italian GP


Valtteri Bottas is expecting a "great" weekend at Monza while Felipe Massa says it is an "incredible" event.

Valtteri Bottas: "The Italian Grand Prix is always a really special race weekend. The fans are really passionate and it’s a high speed circuit with low downforce, therefore racing is always very good in Monza. The weather is fantastic as well, so all in all it’s just a great race weekend with nice fans and an amazing track. I also get to drive there from my home in Monaco – it’s about a three hour drive – so one flight less for the year! A nice way to mark the end of the European races."

Felipe Massa: "Italy has been very good to me. I’ve had two podiums there in the last two years, as well as a podium when I was with Ferrari. Monza is definitely one of the greatest and most historic races in Formula One. The fans are so passionate and enjoy just being there and enjoying such fantastic racing, it’s incredible to see. I know the fans there very well from my years with Ferrari and they still support me massively. It’s always such a pleasure to race in Monza."
