Williams vied with for top spot on both speed and mileage completed, and the team looks set to be a pacesetter this year.

“Everything is new, it’s a big change for the rules,” said Massa. “It’s a big change for everybody, all the teams. I think it’s the right time to change and start something new. I’m really happy with my work until now, with what I see inside the team, how the people work, the motivation, developing day-by-day in the testing, inside the factory.

“I think it’s really positive, I’m 100% motivated and looking forward to having a good season. The championship is long, it’s difficult we always need to keep our feet on the ground, because there’s a lot to do, there’s a lot to understand. It’s new to everybody, and we have the most beautiful car on the grid!”
