dtn. i would class a conspiracy as doing something to one car to hobble it and to keep it secret. ferrari have been quite open about using flip to test mods. so i cannot see how you class that as a conspiracy?

dtn, I agree things started to go downhill with Massa earlier. The accident may have been the final straw and since then Massa has been struggling. If he has been pushing himself, and things do not go well for him he sadly losses his fighting spirit. It is a shame because he is a fast driver but he may have reached his limit.

Would agree with Tony there. Alonso is a great driver (no debating) but he has never been slightly able to get along with his team-mate. He can't handle having a team-mate. Examples - Alex Yoong, Jarno Trulli, Fisichella (poor guy) then Hamilton and now Massa.

So really Felipe just needs to relax take a deep breath and look at it from a different perspective. Not just rush in to see how/what Fernando is doing.

I have to agree with Rubens. I said in a post a week or so ago that Felipe should just go out there and give it his all without worrying about whether or not his time is up. That way he can enjoy it again and, just maybe, he will drive again like the Felipe of old.

Ferrari is the problem...
Not Massa.

He is not the greatest driver but what Ferrari have done to him is soul destroying and it makes him look much worse than he really is!.

Making your team mate look bad is all a part of the game, and one that Alonzo excels. It's been said that great race drivers take a car to its limit, while average drivers take a car to their limit. Seems Massa has found his limit.
