Massa keen to look forwards

Felipe Massa closes the door on his argument with Lewis Hamilton in Singapore
Felipe Massa has said that his view on what happened on track with Lewis Hamilton hasn't changed, although the Brazilian is keen to put his argument with the McLaren man in Singapore behind him.

The pair clashed on track on two separate occasions over the weekend, firstly in qualifying and then on race day in an incident that saw Massa lose places after being forced to pit with a puncture.

The Ferrari driver eventually crossed the line a lap down in ninth place before confronting Hamilton after the race.

However, Massa said he was now keen to put the events of the weekend behind him to focus on the remainder of the season.

“I am very disappointed with the way things went yesterday: Singapore is definitely not a lucky place for me, given something always happens to me here,” he said on the official Ferrari website. “As for Hamilton and his behaviour both off and on the track, I have already told him all I had to say: I have not changed my opinion by one iota since yesterday, but I consider the matter to be closed.

“Better to think about the next race and about trying to finish this difficult season in a good way, as well as preparing as well as possible for the next one.”

Sorry Taipan but confronting someone on live TV is very Jerry Springer and besides it wasn't exactly the case since Massa went on his way after his sarcastic comment. Felipe deems the situation over lets see what happens in Suzuka.
