F1 » Piquet admits relationship with Massa still tainted by Singapore

Having left F1 with his tail between his legs in the wake of the 'Singapore-gate' race-fixing scandal, Nelsinho Piquet admits countryman Felipe Massa has still not forgiven him for the incident the Ferrari star believes cost him the 2008 world championship crown

Both Massa and Hamilton had huge amounts of good luck and bad luck in 2008. Sure, Massa lost the Singapore race through bad luck, but Hamilton was DQed in Belgium because of the grey area in the chicane-cutting rules. Similarly, Massa's penalty in Japan was bad luck as it was a simple racing incident. And Hamilton stuffed it in the pitlane in Canada.

Neither of them deserved to win the WDC in 2008 with the amount of insane stuff that went on :rolleyes:

Well cheat, let me explain it to you then. Having bad luck, bad team decisions and mistakes are things you can live with. You analyze it, and try to do better next time. Being cheated out of a victory because some cheating dweep decides to fix the race by deliberately creating a safety car situation is something completely out a teams control and a whole lot different.

Jeez what an idiot the guy is. Of course it is not his fault. He did nothing wrong. Right.

Still cant believe that some people are so thick-headed to think it was Piquet's fault, his boss ordered him to do it or he loses his job(which means no driving Formula 1 cars), I know which one I would pick
