Felipe Massa’s eighth place continues the Williams Martini Racing driver’s consistent top ten qualifying this season.

The Brazilian was happy with the result, though he believes seventh would have been possible had the lap have been niggle free. But importantly he finished ahead of both Sahara Force Indias who struggled on the day.

I’m happy with our qualifying session and the job that we did,” he said. “Maybe the perfect position would have been seventh as we lost a little bit of time at the end there.

“But, I’m really looking forward to the race tomorrow.”

On an even more positive note, Massa was impressed by the feeling of the car. The Williams has had issues previously with its balance but they appeared all but gone in Bahrain.

I’m happy with the performance of the car across the whole weekend, not only on new tyres but also the old tyres,” he continued.

Massa struggled in China despite qualifying sixth, and found himself going backwards during the race. But Williams will undoubtedly be up for a fight tomorrow, and be ready to tackle whatever the desert has to throw at them (most likely sand).

Tomorrow is another day and we need to concentrate on getting everything right and try to get a better position tomorrow,” he added.
