Massa changes engine.

Felipe Massa will start the Italian Grand Prix with a brand new V8 engine, after Ferrari opted to play its 'joker'.

Under the 2008 regulations, drivers can make one engine change penalty-free and that means the Brazilian will still start from sixth place, rather than losing ten places on the grid.

The Scuderia decided to change the engine following qualifying having noticed some abnormalities.

Kimi Raikkonen - Massa's team-mate - has already used his joker this season, doing so at the British Grand Prix back in July.
