Ferrari: Front suspension failure reason Massa’s Monaco crash



Ferrari confirmed that the Felipe Massa’s car suspension failure the reason of the cruel crash during the Monaco Grand Prix.

The Brazilian suffers two big accidents – First one in Friday Practice three, and in the race he made the exact same crash he had in FP3 but little-bit harder than FP3. The Brazilian locked both front brakes and hit the barrier before the corner and then skated sideways across the track and into the other wall.

“The findings validated the first impressions of the engineers, confirming that the accident was caused by an element of the front left suspension breaking” said a statement on the Scuderia’s official website.

“After an initial evaluation carried out on site last night based on telemetry data, today, the engineers looked at all the components of Felipe Massa’s car, especially those that sustained damage in the heavy impact when the car crashed on lap 29 of the race.”

“With all the required inspections completed to analyse what happened at the Monegasque circuit, the Car Assembly department can now start work in preparing the car for the Canadian Grand Prix. The cars will be flown off to Montreal this weekend for the much awaited race at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit, which looks like being a very important one in terms of the Scuderia’s championship aspirations.”

“This championship seems to be a real rollercoaster of emotions,” commented Ferrari team Principal Stefano Domenicali.

“Following on from a good weekend comes a bad one. That was the case in the first four races outside Europe and nothing has changed now we are back on the Old Continent. I can confirm that we didn’t get carried away when we won, nor did we beat ourselves up when things did not go as well as expected. But from now on, it will be important to establish a consistent level of performance.

“The best news to come out of the Monaco weekend is that Felipe is fine,” concluded Domenicali.

“Two big accidents, just over twenty fours apart and all he has to show for it is a bit of muscle pain. Fortunately there were no other injuries.”
