F1 » Massa: It's like some sort of fatal attraction!


Felipe Massa: There's not much to say at the end of a weekend like this. I am really unhappy that I was not able to finish a race in which I showed I had the pace to fight for the podium. As for the collision with Hamilton, I can only say I do not share the opinion of the Stewards who inflicted the punishment.

For once the stewards got it right. Lewis had his front wheel clearly next to Massa and Massa should have yielded the position. Instead he turns in causing an accident and spoiling both of their races. ( Revenge for previous incidents ). Massa needs to move on from this and accept responsibility where it is due.

An open letter to Felipe Massa and Lewis Hamilton.

Did you not notice the deaths of Dan Wheldon and Marco Simoncelli in the last few weeks? You know the dangers of motorsport, you know that people can suddenly die and be gone forever. So why are you insisting on continuing this argument between you? What if one of you was killed next race? How would the other feel if you hadn't made up your quarrels? If you want to know, just ask Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa, who are full of regret about their arguments with Simoncelli.

Stop being so childish, shake each other's hands and put it all down to racing incidents. Before its too late!

i watched it in a slow motion replay and massa looked into his mirror 3 times and when lewis go along side him he just turned into him to try and push him off the track the same as kobi did and button,but lewis knew he was'nt going to let him through and backed off the throttle which meant massa came off worst and then the brilliant? driver put his front wheel into a large pothole and broke his front suspension REALLY COOL?

An interesting choice of words... fatal attraction... I wonder if Massa can see the irony in that phrase?
In light of recent tragedies, I hope so.
I feel there is a lack of learning from mistakes. Not only from diving in or turning in when there's clearly not room, but also to break the front suspension on both sides of the car? Didn't Massa learn from the day before?
Or did he tell his team "I just cut the corner the same as I did yesterday, what else was I supposed to do?"

Walrus, if you remember back. Red Bull had the same issues with using the front wing. It also tore off some susupension and brake work. It caused Vettels car to go loopy when trying to pass Mark. Ferrari may have the Red Bulls front wing though theft but they have a long way to go to master it. And lastly Massa shut up. No more than a driver on his last legs wondering if he still has it.
