Williams's racer Felipe Massa finished this afternoon's Chinese Grand Prix down in 14th place, a disappointment for the Grove based squad after a promising start.
It was a chaotic start with the vast majority of the grid starting the 56-lap race on Pirelli's intermediate tyres after a wet start to the day. The drying track meant Felipe soon switched onto the soft compound, taking the opportunity under the virtual safety car due to his teammate's accident with the Force India of Sergio Perez.
Unfortunately, the Brazilian racer struggled to get enough grip to maintain position and soon lost positions in the race.
“I'm really disappointed today as everything went wrong for us,” he said. “I had too much wheelspin at the start, and then behind the safety car we had five slow laps on the dry tyres, so they were completely cold.”
“I wasn't able to drive in the proper way because it felt like I was driving on ice. That was the worst part; we lost so much time and so many positions. Then we tried to risk stopping before the others to see if we could pass people and keep up the pace, but I couldn't. We need to carry on trying to do what we did in the first race in Australia and qualifying here. Now we will look forward and concentrate on Bahrain.
This result leaves Felipe eighth in the Drivers' Championship whilst Williams moves down to sixth in the Constructors' Championship.
