Testing Day 5: In 100 Words

Felipe Massa definitely likes downforce. The little Brazilian went quickest on day 5 in his Williams, showing that they have some real potential this year. As predicted, Red Bull upped their game with Riccardo flying round at a good pace. Mercedes and Ferrari continued their good work from last week, although not managing to gaining top spot from Massa. McLaren had new engine troubles to start their week, with Honda replacing their engine with testing only a few hours old. And Pascal Wehrlein finally returned to his Sauber after injury, which was great to see. Who knows what tomorrow will hold?
