In fact there is room for interpretation about what exactly Kimi should have thanked Massa so much for after his Brazilian Grand Prix victory. Massa has made clear that he let Raikkonen past him to victory.
To be honest,I don't think Kimi was supposed to thank him because he LET Kimi win in 2007 Brazilian GP;I appreciated Massa to hold his second place in that race to ensure Kimi's WDC,but that's all. 07 Bra GP was just the replay of 07 Fre GP.Kimi win the race fairly and squarely.
I have nothing against Massa,either,but honestly,I never liked him when Kimi was teammate with him.
I remember Kimi said to Peter Windsor after 2007 Franch GP qualifying that it was Massa who always pick the race strategy first.
I remember after 2008 Chinese GP,when Peter Windsor asked Massa about his overtaking to Kimi,he said it's fairly and squarely.
I felt sorry for what happened to Massa in 2009 Hunguarian GP,but I supposed that Kimi would never have got the F60 he wanted if Massa was still his teammate in 2nd half of the season last year.
During the 2.5 years Kimi partnered with Massa,Massa seemed to get the better treatment in both car development and strategy.But in the end it seems like Kimi owed Massa Who acted as he gifted a WDC to Kimi,and the fact was he pushed like a hell when Kimi made his 2nd pitstop in 07 Bra GP. That made me really sick!
A little bit off topic
But Heikki's words awaken my previous anger.
