Williams driver Felipe Massa will have a new chassis for this weekends Belgian Grand Prix after accident damage in Germany.
The Brazilian was hit on the opening lap of the race by Renault’s Jolyon Palmer, which the Williams driver later claimed that the car was ‘undriveable’ and retired from the race after falling to the back of the field.
He believes that the change of chassis will take those problems away, and bring the team back to the front of the field on a track they should do well on. Williams have traditionally struggled on circuits with slow corners, and the low downforce nature of the next two races should be in their favour. That wasn’t the case though for the last low downforce circuit in Montreal and Austria where the team struggled.
