Massa: I want to fight for a podium

Williams driver Felipe Massa has expressed his desire to record a podium finish this season and feels the Spanish Grand Prix could be the perfect place to do it.

Massa and his teammate Valterri Bottas have a 100% record this season with getting their car over the finish line and scoring points in the process.

The Brazilian, though, understands that it will be difficult to crack into the top-three, especially with Ferrari and Mercedes ahead of them in terms pace and strategy.

"I'm looking forward to having a good race in Spain and hope that we can keep improving race by race, and keep scoring points," he told Crash.net.

"To be able to fight for a podium would be great. We know it won't be easy but we will try everything we can.

"Spain is always a track that most of the drivers know 100% because we are always testing there in the winter.

"So I'd say that everyone pretty much knows the track. It is a circuit that a good car overall normally goes well at because you have a little bit of everything; high-speed corners and low-speed corners. If the car works well here, it will work well on most of the tracks."
