At the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya this afternoon, the Williams Martini F1 Team managed to extend their lead over their rivals the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team in the Constructors Championship with their drivers Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa finishing in fourth and sixth places.
Bottas’ long second stint in the race on the option tyre allowed the team to change from a three-stop to a two-stop race; helping him to keep the closing Ferrari of Räikkönen at bay in the final laps. Meanwhile, Massa managed to make up positions in the opening stint and drove an untroubled and consistent race to collect much needed points for the team.
Bottas expressed his delight at being able to spilt the Scuderia Ferrari drivers for the second consecutive race in a row after managing their tyre wear effectively; while also highlighting that the upgrades brought this weekend have worked and he thanks the team and also Mercedes Benz for their hard work.
Meanwhile, team-mate Massa believes that it was a great race for the team after scoring 20 points and extending their gap in the Constructors Championship. But Massa believes that their performance this weekend has shown that they can get close to the Ferraris and is looking forward to Monaco in a few weeks time.
