Date published: October 4 2016

Williams drivers Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas are hoping to finish the season off strong, starting with the Japanese Grand Prix.

Felipe Massa: I think Suzuka is one of the best places to race. I love the layout and the high-speed sections. Sector 1 I think is the most incredible sector in the world. I really love Japan. I love the people and I love to go there to spend some time in Tokyo. I’m really looking forward to my last Formula One race in Japan and I can’t wait to enjoy it with the amazing Japanese fans.

Valtteri Bottas: If I had to choose one track as my favourite, it would have to be Suzuka because of the high speed nature of the circuit. It’s a proper race track really built for Formula One cars. On top of that, the atmosphere is very special. The Japanese fans get so excited about the race. There’s a lot of support there for me there personally, which I really appreciate. It’s always nice to go to Japan, it’s a favourite for a lot of people because it’s such a great track and overall a great weekend with a really good atmosphere – one I always look forward to.
