Bottas happy to see Massa back on podium

Valtteri Bottas says he was happy to see Williams team-mate Felipe Massa return to the podium at the Italian Grand Prix.

After it became clear that the Mercedes machines were out of reach during Sunday’s race at Monza, Massa consolidated third and stepped onto the rostrum for the first time since last year’s Spanish Grand Prix.

Bottas completed a strong day for Williams in fourth, helping to move the team ahead of Ferrari in the Constructors’ standings for third position.

“As a team we had a really good day,” said Bottas, who has notched up four podiums himself in 2014. “I’m pleased to see Felipe get his first podium of the season, hopefully we can be up there together soon.”
