F1 » Massa close to feeling back to his best


Felipe Massa might not have quite made it onto the podium at Silverstone, but there seemed little doubt that the Brazilian was close to being back to his best after a lean spell.

Maybe ( and hopefully ) Felipe has "got his head together" and has sorted out whatever the demons were that have stopped him performing to his true potential so far this year.
Many people seem to have forgotten that the only reason that Felipe wasn't WDC is because Timo Glock moved over to let Cry-Baby Hamilton past...

rubbish. Massa is not a WDC because he is not good enough. Yes it was close but ultimately he lost because he got less points over the season - deal with it. Still a very average performance and lets not forget that both Ferrari's should have been out in Q2. Red Flag? why? if you can't drive in the wet then go home.

Oh dear...
Touched a nerve did I ?
The reason he "got less points" is that Cry-Baby Hamilton was gifted a few extra ones in the last lap of the last race... Now YOU get over it !

jrc. i would have liked flip to win the wdc, but to say that timo moved over to let lulu score the extra point needed, is just plain silly. whilst saying that , lulu did not even try to defend when seb passed him, despite knowing that he was in a position to lose the wdc. so in my view, lulu did not really deserve the wdc. massa did all that was expected of him. he lost the wdc for two reasons, one was that the engine expired when he was on for a certain win, and the other was a ferrari mess up, leaing a hose connected to his car. in other words, he wasnt beaten, he LOST the wdc, thanks to ferrari.

@richard - I am not saying that Glock moved over deliberately to allow Hamilton to become WDC. What I am saying is that if he had made ANY attempt to defend his position the result of that race, and hence the final championship standings, would almost certainly have been different. I hope this clarifies my view...

jrc. timo was not in a position of trying to defend. he was a long way ahead of lulu when he went off, being on slicks on a wet track.so i think that there was no question of any trying to defend. timo was trying to get to the end, and he failed. lulu just, by LUCK, benefited. no skill, no attack etc
