“Now I understand also that you need to drive not only four (FOR) yourself but you need to think about what the others will do as well..."

If that is a new concept for Massa there is the problem

While the FM/KM first corner accident in my opinion was a racing accident, Massa is right about the stewards, the FIA race direction/stewarding went from one extreme at Silverstone to another extreme in Germany.
They went from reasoning that when two cars touch wheels a blame was a must to dish out to all that happened on and off track during a race was nobody's fault, they red -flagged a race for some dented crash barrier several meters away from the tarmac for the best part of an hour, to calling marshals onto the tarmac of a live track to retrieve a car.

So, you don't ever think about the cars and drivers around you, then? Explains why you are involved in so many shunts. Try watching real drivers' battles, Vettle/Alonso or Rosberg/Hamilton, no crunching there!!!
And PLEASE stop whining all the time.

So NOW he has learned that you need to think about what other drivers might do.

Cant believe that statement. In Britain we are taught to watch out for not only what you do behind the wheel of a car but what others may also do behind the wheel of a car more so if you ride anything on two wheels as there is more chance of serious injury than in a car. Now I have been aware of this since acquiring my full UK drivers licence, but Massa possesses a super licence and has been racing for so many years and only now has come to this conclusion. It beggars belief.
