F1 » Massa's day made worse by threat of Perez


Felipa Massa had another poor day at the race track. What made his 15th position feel even worse was that his team mate won the race, and his mooted replacement Sergio Perez shone in second.

Whatever we wise people may say, the fact is that Domenicali and Alonso are firmly of the opinion that the car is a problem and neither of them has chosen to point the finger at Massa, even after all his bad results. They are both keeping the pressure on the Ferrari engineers.

This Ferrari is rubbish and only the genius of Alonso has made the best of a bad situation. Unfortunately for Massa this makes him look extra bad as he is well below par even for this car. I cannot see Massa lasting the season ... there is no way that the Italian media will watch this happen. If I was Perez I wouldn't want to swop to Ferrari now either as this Sauber looks way the better car.

dear felipe,
Thank you for the memories, but your gradual decline from a race winner, to being the worst driver on the field, has left me no choice but to show you the door.
consider yourself lucky you ever got a drive with this great team.

Massa was never that good. In 2008 he spun 24 times at the wet British GP whilst Hamilton pulled away from everyone to win. Kimi was asleep that year. Massa lucked into other wins with a good car or gained points with Hamilton being disqualified, as at Spa.
Massa never looked like a World Champion, did nothing special that year and thankfully was not crowned champion. Yet that was his best year, as he has gone downhill ever since. Why Ferrari want to lose points again this year with the second car is anyone's guess, perhaps it's to make Alonso happy?

@herowassenna,

"plonker" I don't understand the term..Must be UK noise
complementary, I bet not. 2009, Tiapan, and my arch
nemesis richard have described this Old Dog with 'hummer'
and amusement, you are not in that class.
Byte Me!!

Badman, Jose

@ F1 Fan,
All I said is I don't think Mass is driving a car "Equal" to Alonzo
Actually It may not be the car Massa used in preseason practice
Reading comprehension is a common short coming on this
forum, Noise is not!

I Can't see why Perez would want to go to Ferrari just yet. Despite Alonso's win the car is clearly poor and the Sauber has been improved from last season considerably. If I were him, I'd stick with Sauber this season and continue to show up Kobayashi (who is fairly well regarded in F1) and see where that leads. If Ferrari really want him, he will end up there anyway. You never know, next year Ferrari may have even sorted their car out so he can show what he can really do! At just 22 he has plenty of time just yet!!

jose. a plonker is just a polite way of saying a person who doesnt know what they are saying or doing. if you ever get the chance to see an english tv series "only fools and horses", you will understand!

by the way, wasnt it nice to see schumi sitting with flip, during the red flag period!

wash that dog!

Thank you Richard, although I'm certain a Google search would have explained it to him as well.
Some have asked the question why Perez would want to go to Ferrari now, Reasons against, Ferrari is worse than Sauber at the moment and Alonso.
Any driver would want to take on the best in the field and prove themselves. Senna did it against Prost, Button has done it against Hamilton.
If these drivers done a Schumacher and ran from competition everytime like throughout Schumi's Ferrari career or when Ferrari signed Kimi and Michael ran away, well whats that say about the driver?

Regarding the car comparison, Ferrari will out-develop Sauber. They have a huge budget, many more team members and historically they are winners. Always have been, always will be.
Sauber got second yesterday. It's kind of a no brainer for any driver surely?
