Felipe Massa reckons Williams might be able to overhaul Red Bull during the remainder of the season and finish ‘best of the rest’ behind Mercedes.
Massa took his first podium finish of the year last time out in Italy, while Williams moved up to third in the Constructors’ Championship, 15 points ahead of Ferrari.
Williams is now 95 points off Red Bull and while Massa concedes the gap is big, he still thinks the team has a chance.
“We are planning to close the gap in every race… to catch even Red Bull which is a bit far, but you never know,” he told Reuters. “Everything can change pretty quickly in Formula 1 in two or three races. The situation is different. Maybe we have the opportunity to fight for the second place.
