Insisting his performance in China was a step forward, Ferrari driver Felipe Massa says Bahrain should bring another improvement in his fortunes.
Although the Brazilian finished in 13th position in Shanghai, he was just some five seconds behind Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso at the checkered flag, having struggled to match the Spaniard in the opening two events. Now Massa, who is yet to score a point this year, is hoping to continue making progress this weekend.
"I want to have a good race here, the best of the season so far. So I'm just looking forward to having a nice race weekend, score good points and working for now on to have a better race all the time."
When asked if he had made progress in China compared to the first two races, he said: "Yes, definitely. Even if the result in the end was not very satisfying for the team.
"It was a long race in terms of race pace. In terms of qualifying everything was normal. For sure it was a much different race in Shanghai compared to the first two."
