Veteran Williams Martini Racing driver Felipe Massa is looking forward to the start of a new season when Formula 1 starts at the traditional season-opener in Melbourne next weekend.

The Albert Park circuit is a fitting place to start the 2016 season where the part street circuit layout provides an interesting challenger for the drivers. After a busy winter, Aussie fans always create an electric atmosphere, making it a popular destination.

After finishing the Australian Grand Prix last season in fourth behind the Scuderia Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel, Massa hopes the team can start this well again this season, showcasing a competitive car straight away.

“Australia is always a nice place to start the season because it’s a fantastic country and everybody likes to go there, it is also a race where anything can happen,” said Massa, who is competing in his third season with the Williams team in 2016.

“I’m really looking forward to starting a new season, and I hope we can start well like we did last year. Hopefully our car is competitive straight away, that’s the most important thing.

“I am pretty optimistic that we can have a good first race and a good season.”
