Good spelling there people, hahaha. Massa is a mobile chicane these days and the sooner he is out of f1 the better. More young guns should be given a chance for 1-2 seasons and remove the dead wood.

Not nice from Ferrari. But I think it was pretty clear who ran his front wing into who's rear tire and ****ed up his own race. Massa had no chance of destroying Hamilton's race if Hamilton had simply waited for a good DRS draft to blow by Massa the next lap.

Agree with the previous poster, don't really see the fuss here. Of course they would try to hold Hamilton up as much as possible. But, as it turned out, they didn't need to ruin Hamilton's race as he willingly did so himself just moments later. Can anyone really say that wasn't a silly move, regardless what had been said on team radio before? Race control obviously thought so and they have access to the radio traffic...

Bit Naughty from Smedley, and what makes it worse is that the radio call came before the race incident between Hamilton and Massa suggesting this was planned before the start of the race, a premeditated attack on Lewis.

I do feel for Massa though, Lewis has been like a pestilence in his life this season with Massa trying hard to keep his Ferrari seat, Lewis's destroyed Massa's race in Monaco, maneuvered his Mclaren into Massa on the last lap at Silverstone and intimidating him in the quail session in Singapore, and his poor judgement in the race causing Massa to have a puncture.

Lewis needs mentor/manager who has been in f1, i think Jackie Stewart could be a good choice.

You know I said this point a few times before on these forums that I'm tired of hearing about McLaren and Hamilton. Well, this one just puts me over the edge. I think this is a fabricated BS story from Mclaren and Whitmarsh as a boo hoo feel sorry for lulu rubbish. Any way possible to STILL keep little girly crybaby lulu in the news they will do. However, if Smedley did tell Massa to do this: one it wouldn't surprise me that Ferrari AGAIN does things dirty, and two WOOOO HOOOO something Ferrari did that was dirty that I actually agree with YEAHHH!!! Problem is that hamilton destroyed Massa. Damn.Oh well Massa get em at Suzuka .
