Felipe Massa was left to rue tyre struggles as he was eliminated from the second stage of qualifying for the British Grand Prix.
Massa will line-up from 12th place on the grid and was puzzled by his failure to get Pirelli's tyres into the correct operating window.
"It definitely wasn’t a good qualifying for me today, because it was hard to make the rear tyres work in a way that wouldn’t lose performance throughout my lap," he rued.
"Unfortunately, I couldn’t put my lap together because of that. I was a little bit surprised because it’s not the first time we’ve had these issues with the tyres."
Team-mate Valtteri Bottas fared better and will start from sixth position.
"I felt like I got everything out of the car today, which is always a nice feeling as a driver," he said.
"I was hoping we could be closer to the front-runners. There is a little bit of a gap which we are working flat out for, so the thing to do now is to focus on the race."
