Felipe Massa says Williams can compete with Mercedes F1

Williams F1 driver Felipe Massa believes the team could finish second in the Formula One Constructors’ Championship.
Massa believes that the team has improved in leaps and bounds after enduring a miserable season last time around with their decision to run with the dominant Mercedes engine backfiring on them. While the stock Mercedes engine powered team lies way out in front with a massive lead in the Formula One Constructors’ Championship, the Brazilian is confident Williams F1 can catch up with second placed Red Bull Racing who are currently 84 points ahead in the Constructors’ Championship table.
Massa added that the team needs to be flawless and fight for everything. He went on to add that if the team manages to do that from now until the end of the season, then it is a real possibility.
The Brazilian believes that while it is not possible to catch up with the Constructors’ Championship leaders Mercedes F1, the Williams F1 team can indeed challenge them in individual races when the Formula One season restarts in a week’s time in Belgium.
According to Felipe Massa, the Williams F1 team has been one of the standout performers this season thanks to the new cars that has far lower down force and coupled with the Mercedes engines, it has been a revelation this season.
Massa stated that it can’t be ruled out that the team can have a chance to go head to head against Mercedes. He went on to add that the circuits in Belgium, Italy, Brazil and the United States and maybe the one in Abu Dhabi, UAE with their long straights will suit the style of the cars and give them the advantage over Mercedes F1 and that is something Felipe Massa is looking forward to in the next few months.
