#Brazilian comment: Massa accepts Verstappen apology

Published

Felipe Massa has called a close to the latest controversy surrounding Max Verstappen.

In Bahrain, the Dutch teenager hit out at Brazil as a nation following a qualifying run-in with Felipe Massa.

Massa responded angrily, and the Red Bull driver duly apologised via social media.

Massa, the only Brazilian driver on the current starting grid, told UOL Esporte that he had spoken to Verstappen after the race and warned him to ‘be careful what you say because you’re going to have to go to Brazil to race there’.

When asked about the apology, Massa said on Tuesday: “To tell the truth, he was hot headed and said things he should not have.

“But I get along really well with him, I have no problems with him and to be honest, I was only playing with him,” Massa is quoted by Brazil’s Globo.

“And I think he understood, because he apologised and that’s the way it should have gone. He’s a cool guy, a great driver and I’m sure with age, he’s going to get better,” the Williams driver added.

Verstappen crashed out of Sunday’s race at the Sakhir circuit after a brake failure.
