Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas say Mercedes' performance at the Italian Grand Prix with its upgraded power unit has whetted their appetite for Williams' own update, though neither is certain if the customer teams will get one before 2016.
Massa and Bottas, who were this week confirmed as staying with Williams for 2016, locked out the third row in qualifying for the Monza race, but were impressed with the pace from the factory team following the move to introduce an engine upgrade using all seven of its in-season development tokens.

“I haven't heard if we're going to get it or not,” said Bottas. “You will have to ask the team. It would be nice obviously, it looks like a step forward; it would be nice.”
“Very good,” Massa added. “It looks like a big improvement but I have no idea when we're going to have it. So I hope we will have it. I don't know [if we will even get it].”
