He's been thoroughly outpaced by Alonso and has had little bad luck this year... Alonso was stuck behind him in Australia, raced better than him in Malaysia with many problems. Massa should be thankful that Alonso has fluffed things up a bit, he could easily be miles behind
hmm.. I doubt Massa is that much slower or even slow against Alonso. Probably, its best to say 'unsuitable car'.
Karun chandhok is just better than Bruno Senna
Nice analysis you have there.
Stefano Domenicali and Chris Dyer's comments about both drivers performance, which might be a hint of what may be to come?
No hard feelings towards Massa and his supporters, but I feel that he has to step up his game for Ferrari to take the fight to Red Bull and McLaren in the constructors' championship.
Stefano Domenicali, Ferrari team principal
“First and foremost I want to congratulate Fernando. He drove a really fantastic lap, getting every last thousandth of a second of performance out of the package he had today. Felipe never managed to find the right feeling for the car this weekend and today he did the best he could: we have to analyse the reasons that led to this situation.."
Chris Dyer, Ferrari chief engineer
"Both Felipe and Fernando have struggled all weekend, especially in terms of grip levels. On his last qualifying lap, Fernando produced an exceptional lap and getting the car at least onto the second row was down to his talent.."
