One of the more traditional racing teams in Formula 1, Williams comes from poor results in recent years, but in the 2014 tests was a highlight side of the Mercedes. Red Bull, champion of the last four World had many problems.
Williams has already made great cars, and even had great titles currently designed a good car in 2012, when he had the win in Barcelona. It sure is a competitive and chances of winning evidence team.
Williams had in Ayrton Senna its last great pilot in 1994. In last 20 years its performance was a shame and we know Felipe Massa is really far to be a good pilot. He could not win a race since the Brazilian Grand Prix 4 years ago and any pilot who spent so many time without a win can be considered a top pilot.
The last corner of the last lap of the last race of 2008 took decisive weight in the fate of Felipe Massa. At November 2, so there are exactly six years, the Brazilian became "world champion" for a few seconds that separated the moment he crossed the finish line of the GP of Brazil, winning the race by overtaking Lewis Hamilton Timo Glock on the Binding, which returned the title to English
Great pilots are champions and not almost champions or champions for a few seconds. If we analyze our last F1 champions we can see names like Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso or Sebastian Vettel who won their prizes before the last race of the year, specially the German pilots. In 2008 Felipe Massa had lots of mistakes and because of them he can't be a World Champion. It's simple!
Do you think Ferrari harmed his career? I guess you forgot when Felipe Massa was in Ferrari Michael Schumacher won few World Championships with the same car. Why does the Felipe didn't win? He's just a driver, not a pilot. That's the true!
Ferrari once again left Felipe Massa in hand. The person responsible for operating the light in the pit signaled green to Brazilian pilot light as mechanics still refuel the car. It was the 17th round of the Singapore Grand Prix, the first played at night in the history of Formula 1. When you see the green light, mass accelerated, pulled the fuel line, was punished by the stewards for nearly colliding with Adrian Sutil and ended only in 13th place in the race.
Well, as I told you before, a great piloto never put all your hope in a single race. If he had some problems, other pilots had too. This is not a great reason to justify anything. Every team always make some mistakes. By the way, he runs on F1 since 2002 and the specific episode you told happened in 2008. And about the other years? Why he can't be a Champion?
Massa before the ferrari just ran for Sauber, team that was well below the other teams.
From 2006 until last year, Felipe raced for Ferrari. Ferrari is the culprit single by Felipe having a poor career titles.
Felipe Massa doesn't need any team to mess up his carreer. He can do this alone. And if you look back you'll see that we have many pilots who won driving cars not so good. As we can see Felipe has tons of excuses to explain his failure as a pilot. That's all.
