Felipe Massa was left 'angry' following the F1 2011 Canadian Grand Prix, even though he managed to snatch sixth on the line, out dragging Kamui Kobayashi to steal the place in a photo-finish.
Massa looked to be in contention for the victory - or at the very least a podium - but damaged his front wing on lap 53 as he attempted to lap the Hispania of Narain Karthikeyan.
That incident dropped him back and while the final safety car period allowed him to make up time – deployed after Nick Heidfeld crashed out – the Brazilian was none too happy.
“I can't draw much satisfaction from this sixth place, given the potential we had here,” he reflected. “My chances of finishing on the podium and also of fighting for the win given how things went, just evaporated when I was passing Karthikeyan.
“He was going very slowly on the dry line but then, as I was passing him on the wet, he accelerated and I lost control of the car ending up in the wall.
“Thanks to the next Safety Car, I was able to catch up to the pack and then, in the end, I passed a few cars to get as high as sixth. [But] I am angry, there is no point denying it.
“We qualified well and we were in the top three up until the red flag. Then what happened happened and it was all over.”
Despite his disappointment however, the Brazilian did take some positives from the weekend, not least the pace of his Ferrari.
“I am pleased with how the car performed, both on the extreme wets and on the slicks, but with the intermediates, I was struggling a bit,” he added.
“Now we go to Valencia, a track where we can be competitive, given its characteristics are fairly similar to here.
“We will have the medium tyres, that we tested here on Friday: we will see what sort of grip levels they give us.”
