Poor Massa,as if he isn't suffering enough at the moment having to have Alonso stuck in there with him he has now lost a close friend too,i really feel for the guy.As i have said before the way Ferrari are treating him at the moment is unbelievable,and to make him have to move over for Alonso(in the first race)is just rediculous in my view.The time has come to put your foot down now Felipe!

The biggest unanswered question is will Ferrari finally support one of the most loyal drivers they have ever had? Unfortunately I suspect the answer will be no.

Andrew,well said,that is exactly the reason why i feel sorry for Massa after all what he has done for Ferari in the past,he has driven his heart out for them,he nearly won the title in 08,he even helped Kimi to win the title in 07 and they are treating him like this,why?i just can't understand it.It's payback time for Massa now,Go for it Massa!!!show Ferrari that you are just not going to be treated in this terrible way anymore.

@ f1Fan, Ferrari have backed FM its just FA is the man. FM is a team player but he's was made pure No2 the moment FA joined the team. FA is always the No1 driver. FM has to take the fight to FA if he wants to be no1 but i think he knows his place - 2nd

FreddyFreeloader,thats just the point that i am trying to make here,Ferrari are just not allowing Massa to take the fight to Alonso,the minute Alonso gets up behind Massa it is move over time,he is not being allowed the chance to race him fairly.Thats the reason why i think that the time has now come for Massa to put his foot down now and refuse to obey any more team orders from Ferrari,because if he does'nt then he may as well just pack up racing now because he is being made a fool of in my opinion.

If rains all weekend in Sepang,I don't that the Scuderia will make a good performance.They have a lot of thinks to test and the rain can ruin their plans.In Melbourne during saturday when the track was a little affected by early rain,Ferrari was off pace.On Sunday when the track was in optimal conditions(for Melbourne standarts in March) they were going pretty good,epecially Fernando.And if Massa was forced to make an extra pit stop last race,you can imagine here in Sepang with the high temperatures.Personally being a fan of Ferrari,I am really dissapointed with 150 Italia car.I excepted Ferrari to challenge Red Bull but they are far away to the mighty energy drink outfit.Hope that at least McLaren will be able to challenge them this weekend.

Whether we all like it or not... Massa, Button & Webber are No-2 drivers on their respective teams.. They know it, their bosses know it, Alonso, Hamilton & Vettel know it...
We can talk/argue here about the team's directives "move over", "FA Faster than you", "MW's breaks heating up", "Button's front wing damaged" etc all night!

Undapakru,well i don't like it i think every second team driver should be given an equal chance to win until it is mathmaticly impossible for them to win the title,doing it in the first race as Ferrai did is rediculous.I see that the Alonso fans on here have disagreed with what i said about Massa,but that was to be expected i suppose.

The WCC is the only paid trophy/honor. WDC is paid nothing extra from Bernie. I enjoy team orders myself. Massa as it was stated over ran the car keeping Button at bay. Alonso was running flat out with no one on him. It was a good idea for Massa at that point to concede the position to his team mate. I think alot of people remember last year and want to beat on the team any chance they can.
