Williams have decided they could not fix Felipe Massa’s car and have decided to push it back into the garage. A disconsolate Massa follows them back into the garage.

“Article 41.3 of F1’s Sporting Regulations states: ‘In all cases the order will be taken at the last point at which it was possible to determine the position of all cars. All such cars will then be permitted to resume the race.’
