Williams is one of the oldest teams on the grid, having been on the racing scene since 1977. They have won 7 driver’s championships and 9 constructor’s championships during their long and illustrious career. But now, they are but a pale shadow of what they used to be. Brazilian veteran Felipe Massa has had the measure over Canadian rookie Lance Stroll in all but one race in terms of Qualifying. Stroll had out-qualified Massa at Azerbaijan, later at Hungary, he out-qualified Paul Di Resta who was substituting for Massa after the latter pulled out. In terms of race pace, Massa has had the upper hand over his inexperienced teammate except for Canada and Azerbaijan, the latter of which, Stroll scored a shock podium.
The Toro Rosso team has really struggled this season after a fairly strong start to the season. In the qualifying battle, Sainz Jr leads Daniil Kvyat with a head-to-head score of 6-5 in a closely contested duel. However, race results tell a different story, The Spaniard has finished ahead of the Russian on many occasions and Kvyat has not finished ahead of Sainz even once.
