Williams Malaysian upgrades not ready in time

Williams showed great pace in Australia with Valtteri Bottas set for a podium finish had it not been for his brush with the wall, whilst Felipe Massa’s form remained an unknown thanks to a first corner incident.

The team however had hoped to further close the gap to the front with its Malaysian Grand Prix upgrade package, however that won’t be ready in time according to Felipe Massa.

“We are missing a little bit or rear downforce and we are working on that to improve,” he said on Thursday.

“Pieces were not ready for this race, so we have the same car, more or less, as we had for Australia.

“This is a different track so we need to see how the car behaves here, but we are definitely working 100% in the factory to improve. There are some areas we need to improve and I’m sure when we fix them the car will grow.

“The car will show a better balance definitely and I think that will be positive for us as well.”
