Felipe Massa: “Definitely a place I really enjoy racing”

Felipe Massa is looking forward to having a good race this weekend at the second round of the 2016 Formula 1 season when the championship returns to Bahrain.

The Williams Martini Racing driver finished fifth behind the Red Bull Racing of Daniel Ricciardo at the season-opener in Melbourne. After winning twice at the Bahrain International Circuit and other good results, Massa is hoping to achieve another fantastic result this weekend.

“Bahrain is definitely a place I really enjoy racing,” said Massa. “I’ve won twice there and I’ve had many other good results. I always enjoy going there, including many times for testing.

“I like the people as well as the place in general and I look forward to having a good race there. It’s the second race of the season now and I really hope we can have another fantastic result in a place I enjoy.”

The Brazilian’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas is looking forward to racing in Bahrain this weekend. The Finnish driver is hoping for a good result like last year where he finished fourth behind the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS of Nico Rosberg.

“The Bahrain evening race is a really nice one,” said Bottas. “I prefer it much more as an evening race. The track looks good and is just as nice to drive. It’s a good track for racing and I got a decent result last year.

“It’s quite a different kind of track to Melbourne, so it’s going to be interesting to see where we are compared to the others; because it’s more like a standard race track rather than the Melbourne street circuit. It will still only be the second race of the season, so I’m looking forward to it.”
