FElipe massa We are well prepared for China and we will have all the updates we hoped to bring with us in Shanghai, after work in the factory and the simulator last week. I hope this translates into a further performance improvement on track. Massa has never won the Chinese Grand Prix, his best result being second which he scored back in 2008. Nevertheless he does enjoy the Herman Tilke designed circuit, “Shanghai is a very nice track with a variety of corner types and fast straights, so you definitely need a car that works well in the fast sections, but you also need it to have plenty of downforce to deal with the tighter turns. We can expect to see quite high tyre degradation, especially on the fronts.
