I'm not into conspiracies but I think Massa got royally stuffed by Ferrari yesterday! To leave him out that long was clearly not the thing to do. But at least Massa showed his form from the latter part of last year has continued and he's going to give Alonso something to think about this year!

Truly disgusting behaviour by ferrari, they have always been a 1 driver team and continue to be, they have no class or respect

They think they have people fooled by bringing in Alonso so early, hopefully Massa continues to be fast with the new car and can qualify ahead of Alonso and we'll see what new dirty trick ferrari pull to get their Prima donna ahead of him

I do not understand why Force India keeps PDR. ALl he does is complain about his team and wanting to get to a top team. With his current performance, I doubt it...

I think ferrari shafted masa and shot them selves in the foot.

They should of brought masa in one lap earlier then seb or at the same time but they were more interested getting alonso in front masa

ferarri not only need alonso to finish in front of redbulls but also need masa to finish in front of the redbulls . i think they could of achieved 2nd and 3rd if they were smart

Why is everyone crying that Ferrari made the wrong move for Massa. This is garbage and if quoted correctly Massa is turning into a cry baby. He had the first stop as was customary for the lead driver, in the second it was a joint decision to stay out. Massa by his own admission thought he had more laps on his tires and was content to be up Vettals butt. Alonzo took a gamble and it paid off with the correct strategy and his driving ability had a good race..how far behind was Massa? All the cry babies have to realize Alonzo is the better driver and that is not conjecture, it is fact. Who do you think is number one at McL, Benz, Lotus...they all have #1's get used to it and stop the crying!

@ Bowz27

The team also didn't tell Sutil to stay behind him though...

@ David Waller.

I'M sorry, but you do realise he is there to race, right? Not be a supporting man for Alonso. If they had Massa on the same strategy as Alonso was MASSA would've finished ahead of Alonso. In case you didn't notice, Massa qualified ahead of Alonso too! So please, No-one cost Alonso the race but Alonso. (and Kimi's brilliant pace and tyre management, of course)
