Massa urges Williams to review pitstops

Felipe Massa has called on Williams to get their act together in terms of pitstops following poor display at the Belgian GP.

While his team-mate Valtteri Bottas finished third to claim his third podium of the season, Massa left Spa empty-handed as he was down in 13th place after he picked up tyre debris from Lewis Hamilton's stricken Mercedes.

The Brazilian also lost track position to the likes of Daniil Kvyat and Nico Hulkenberg during his second pitstop and the 33-year-old believes the team need to step it up.

"We need to review and improve the procedures," Massa is quoted as saying by Autosport. "In many things, not just in that [the debris incident in the race].

"In qualifying we didn't do a perfect job in the procedures, so it's something I'm working on and pushing very hard, but the team is growing. I hope it's something that won't happen anymore."
