Podium chance just evaporated for Karthikeyan incident – Massa

Published

on

June.13 – The Brazilian F1 speedy Felipe Massa was a lot annoyed following Canadian GP race, with the Ferrari driver hitting out at Hispania’s Narain Karthikeyan for ‘going very slowly on the dry line’ as he try to make his way past. The Ferrari driver spiraled into the wall as a result of going offline, but he fought back through the field after a front wing change and finally pipped Sauber man Kamui Kobayashi to the line for sixth.

“I can’t draw much satisfaction from this sixth place, given the potential we had here,” Massa explained. “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. 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 and it was all over. 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. 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.”
