Massa: “Everything just locked up”

All was going well for Felipe Massa until he hit the wall, causing his retirement from what could have been a point-scoring race. 

Felipe Massa has described the incident which saw him retire from the race on lap 22. The Brazilian Driver had been fighting for a top-10 and was well on his way to achieving that when he crashed on the way into Turn 6.

“I made a good start and I was running inside the points before my crash", Massa explained. 

“It was quite a big one. I was fighting Vandoorne at the time and I braked late but everything just locked up. It was a tough race and it’s just difficult to believe what happened.

"I’m very disappointed", the Brazilian added, referring to the non-point scoring race he had. 

“We have a long week ahead of us with plenty of other opportunities to score points – all we can do is learn from this, stay positive and keep moving forward to the next race.”

Massa’s teammate at Venturi, Edoardo Mortara, had finished 12th but was given a time penalty for colliding with the BMW of Maximillian Guenther, dropping the Swiss driver down to 17th
