Felipe Massa rued a 'difficult day' but was nonetheless encouraged as he sampled Williams' new front wing at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Williams flew the part in for Massa to trial during final practice and it was kept on the FW38 for the evening's qualifying session, in which he set the seventh quickest time.

"We always expected to be a little bit more in front," he said.

"It was a difficult day trying the new wing in practice and then not really having the balance, so we took our time to decide whether or not we would use it in qualifying.

"We decided to use it and managed to improve our time which was important. We need more time though to understand this front wing to get the most from it.

"I’m pretty upbeat about our position for qualifying, though."
