Singapore GP: Williams Martini recovers to score points
After the disappointment of qualifying for the 2017 Singapore GP it would be a positive turn around from the Williams team to see Lance Stroll finish in 8th. Felipe Massa was just outside the top ten in eleventh. The race would start under wet conditions with there been a crash at the start. This would allow both Williams to move up the order. There was an element of luck in terms of cars ahead retiring at the start but regardless of this to come away with a result was certainly something for the team to take away as a positive from the race.
Singapore GP: Williams Martini struggles in qualifying
Qualifying for the 2017 Singapore GP would see the Williams Martini team struggle with neither car making it past the first period. Felipe Massa would finish in 17th and team-mate Lance Stroll 18th. It was a period that saw both drivers have issues with Felipe hitting the barrier damaging a rear wheel even before he had set a time. Lance would make the same mistake late in the period. It was a far from satisfying result for all at Williams. Now it was down to whether they can achieve a result in a race that can see unexpected things occur.
Singapore GP: Williams Martini fails to improve in FP3
The final practice session for the 2017 Singapore GP would see the Williams Martin team fail to improve from their Friday times. Felipe Massa would finish in 15th and team-mate Lance Stroll 17th. The pace is simply not there for either driver as they continued to struggle. For Lance he would brush the wall quite hard with the left side of his car late in the session. Qualifying was looking like it would also be a very difficult session with it looking like very likely that neither driver would make it past the opening period.
Singapore GP: Tough going for Williams Martini in FP2
The second Friday practice session for the 2017 Singapore GP would be a tough one for the Williams Martini team with their drivers well down the times. Felipe Massa would finish in 15th while team-mate Lance Stroll was 16th but half a second behind. Despite it been a session that saw both drivers not have any issues it was a difficult one that saw both struggle for pace. If the Williams team can not find a solution to their lack of pace this weekend is not likely to produce the results they hope for.
Singapore GP: Mixed session for Williams Martini in FP1
The opening Friday practice session for the 2017 Singapore GP would see the Williams Martini team finish down the times with Felipe Massa 14th and Lance Stroll 17th. It was a mixed sesssion with Lance Stroll suffering issues with his car that saw him forced to pit early on in the session with a technical issue. For Felipe Massa his session would see him run updates on his car as he worked through the teams programme. He would not have any issues and was able to get thorugh the session. But it still remains a concern that both drivers were well down the order.
Singapore GP: Williams Martini Grand Prix Preview

The 2017 Italian GP would see the Williams Martini team come away with double points scoring finish with Lance Stroll finishing in 7th and team-mate Felipe Massa 8th. It was a race that would see neither driver outside the top ten but given their dry weather pace in the practice sessions the result for the Williams team was probably the best they could hope for but the result will see them extend their lead over Torro Rosso. Overall a far better weekend that the races prior to this.
Italian GP: Williams Martini turns qualifying around
In what was a major turn around for the Williams Martini team, after their recent difficulties in qualifying, to see both Williams cars finishing in the top ten.

With various grid penalties Lance will start Sunday's race from an amzing second and Felipe seventh. This will make Lance the youngest front row starter in F1 history. A great result for all at Williams.
