Felipe Massa: Now Sebastian is ‘crumbling under the pressure’

Published

Massa Visiting a Shell oil rig, the FPSO Fluminense, among the grands prix, the Ferrari driver shared his standpoint on both the huge BP oil spill that is threatening coastlines and ecosystems as well as last year’s Hungarian Grand Prix accident, which threatened his own life.

“For sure, I think these things happen for a reason,” he said to the Daily Telegraph with regards to BP’s Deepwater Horizon explosion. “Sometimes you see incredible things happen and we don’t know why. It’s the same as my accident. It was so incredible but it happened for a reason.”

Asked to enlarge on what the possible reason was, he told: “Maybe it was a lesson not to take things for granted. I used to look at accidents and bad things and think they only happened to other people.”

Turning his attention to this year’s Championship and the fresh debacle in Turkey, which saw Sebastian Vettel crash into his team-mate Mark Webber, Massa consider F1 supporters and the media alike can be rather fickle in their estimation of drivers.

“I think sometimes people don’t know what they are talking about,” he said. “I mean, look, nobody cares about Mark Webber, then he wins two races and all of a sudden he is amazing.

“Now Sebastian is ‘crumbling under the pressure’.

“After two races people change their minds very quickly. The fact is there are lots of drivers who are capable of winning the Championship.”
