Andy Stevenson, Force India: Like a shark assaulted it

Force India team manager Andy Stevenson has hit out at Felipe Massa and Robert Kubica, accusing them of estimating his driver’s very important points in Canadian Grand Prix. Starting fifth position on the grid, his most excellent qualifying position of the season, Tonio Liuzzi was involved in a bit of argy-bargy with Ferrari’s Massa, the duo crashing no fewer than three times through the first corner alone.

As a result, the Italian had to pit for a new front wing, dropping him down the order. He did, but, manages to work his way back up to ninth place. His team-mate Adrian Sutil also found himself being knocked around, this time by Renault’s Robert Kubica, resulting in a puncture and another unscheduled stop for the team.

“I’m personally very disappointed in the standard of driving in Canada because it did ruin what could have happened to us,” Stevenson said to GP Week.

“You only had to go down to the steward’s room – there were a few drivers in there having to explain away their actions.”

He added: “Massa was very unfair into the first corner and left no room at all for Tonio, actually pushed him onto the grass.

“It looks like Massa had another couple of bites at him as well and if you see the car, it looks like a shark attacked it.”

Massa, though, wasn’t the only rival to face Stevenson’s wrath.

He labeled Kubica’s move on Sutil as “one of the most ridiculous moves” he had ever seen. “It was crazy and it ruined Adrian’s race.”
