Massa: High tyre degradation was cost Monza podium

Felipe Massa says that high tyre degradation cost his best season result at Monza for Italian Grand Prix. But he is still happy with team best results.

The Brazilian was made a perfect start and he overtook ahead appetizer McLaren’s Jenson Button, and kept the second place, but early tyre degradation cost his second place in first time, following his pit-stop, he was dropped from the running position with high tyre degradation to finish .

“It was unfortunate (to lose the telemetry), but the degradation was high today and we were in a difficult position and putting that on the table it was a good result for the team,” Massa told Sky Sports.

“They couldn’t see me on the track from start to finish but everything they were telling me I was doing on the steering wheel and I don’t think it was a big problem. The biggest problem was the tyres.

“I expected better degradation, but I think it was a good result for us, third and fourth, for the team it was a good result.”

Struggled Massa admits that he is very happy with his team-mate championship leader Fernando Alosno and Ferrari’s good results in home ground.

“For sure my personal race was very important, but being in a position to help Fernando as well who is in a position to fight for the Championship we know is very important for the team,” he said.
