Felipe Massa says that the Malaysian GP team orders saga was “a mistake” by Williams – and insists that the team supports his opinion.
Massa insists that it had not been discussed in advance.
The 2014 Formula 1 season is now two races old, and we are beginning to get a taste of which teams have performance and which still have some work to do.
Nico Rosberg remains the points leader heading into Bahrain, while Ferrari and Red Bull still have a lot of catching up to do to match Mercedes. Meanwhile, RBR driver Daniel Ricciardo just needs a bit of luck.
McLaren racing director Eric Boullier says that the team hopes to be in a strong position in Monaco and Montreal, even if it is still struggling with a lack of downforce.
He accepts that the next three races, which feature a lot of high speed corners and put a premium on aero efficiency, are going to be tough.
Just a few weeks ago everyone was writing off Sebastian Vettel’s chances of winning a fifth Formula 1 championship in 2014, but his first podium of the year in Malaysia showed that he cannot be counted out yet.
Vettel lost out to Nico Rosberg at the start, but he kept his fellow German in his sights on his way to a reliable third place. It was the first time that he had logged a race distance in the RB10.
