You serious? So if Massa is allowed to finish ahead, explain what happened in Germany.
Germany: Massa lagging behind in the championship, he leads a race for the first time this year. Ferrari does not the have the fastest car on the grid and make a reasonable assumption that if any of their drivers are going to challenge RB and Macca for the title, it's going to be Alonso, as Massa has been comprehensively outpaced by the Spaniard all year, except for the very rare occasion, and the Brazilian isn't exactly pulling away at the front at Hockenheim. They switch the order and give Alonso an extra 7 pts. Without those 7 points, the strategic thinking amongst all his rivals might have been so different in the closing rounds.
Now Massa has signed a contract extension with Scuderia so we can safely assume that they are giving him every right to beat his teammate, if he can. And if not, he has no one else to blame but himself for staying at Ferrari and we shouldn't feel sorry for him. I don't believe Massa would extend his contract with the team if he knew they would not allow him to challenge Alonso.
