Felipe Massa said that his first day of running with Williams was a ‘special’ experience.
Massa has switched to Williams after eight years with Ferrari and set the second fastest time, having completed 47 laps at Jerez.
“It was a very special day, the first day I drove with a different engine in Formula 1,” he said after his first experience of the Williams FW36.
“We didn’t do as many laps as we expected to do. Unfortunately many times you have a little issue and it takes a lot of time to change. Others are struggling more than us but I’m happy with the day, I’m happy with the first feeling and the first impression with the team, driving the car, the engine, the car itself, the tyres, gearbox, everything.”
