|A day with Felipe at Maranello 'The team stands by me'|
| Angry could be a polite way of describing Felipe Massa's mood, on a day spent in Maranello to work in the simulator and to attend meetings with his engineers. Five days on from the Spanish Grand Prix, the Brazilian is still annoyed about the outcome of a race that could definitely have ended differently, but for the penalty imposed shortly before half-distance and, maybe if it had not been for the traffic that penalised him in Q2 on Saturday afternoon.
Clearly, the final outcome could at best have only featured a finish in the lower end of the points zone but, given Felipe's score in this first quarter of the championship, it would still have offered some respite. However, it ended with Felipe having to comment on his fourth blank scorecard of the season.
'Yes I am bloody p***ed off,' snaps Felipe. 'Even today, I still struggle to understand the reason for the drive-through and that was the point at which my race was ruined.'
Every driver, consciously or otherwise, has his team-mate as a point of reference and it's not easy to accept or to explain the large difference in points that currently exists between Felipe and Fernando. However, Felipe is not the sort to hide from the truth and provides honest answers to our questions.
'I think that this year, the only race where there really was a big difference between me and Fernando was in Australia and then, in Malaysia the rain made it more complicated to get a clear picture. Starting in China, the difference in qualifying between the two of us was not so dramatic. Even in Barcelona, but for the traffic, my time in Q2 was in line with previous events and on Sunday my pace was not that far off. I think we must also take into account that, at the moment, Fernando's driving is amazing: he is on super form, maybe even perfect.'
