"I'm maybe the lowest driver in the car, I'm very low in the car and maybe if I was a bit higher, it would be easier to see," Massa explained.
"Definitely I couldn't see the lines very well, so I was a little bit outside, and that was it."
Long story short, i think he missed the line because he could not see it or he was seeing doubles.
Someone needs to ask him about his vision, it could be a serious safety issue on the track.

The double vission is only present when one eye moves to a point where it's muscles are interfered with. He can have no double vission looking in all directions but one, and have it in one eye position only, it can be complicated. Maybe the vision blurs at instances in time, under high G loadings, we don't know.
But it's hard to accept he missed the start line because he was too low in the car.
He should be able to notice that as the line disappeared under the wing, you should stop the car.
What may have happened is that he saw 2 lines. and aimed for the further one.

I believe he has some long term complications from his accident, and him saying he's too low in the car just makes me suspect him even more of hiding some eye problems.
The fracture around his eye can be responsible for problems such as double vision or facial nerve damage. It's unlikely he would be 100% after such a big accident.
that left eye is sunken(Enophthalmos) probably has limited mobility from eye muscles

Liuzzi in car
Look at how low massa is in comparison to Liuzzi. Sure, they may be different heights, but surely not 5 inches or so.
If u want to find out the field of vision of a patient you dont need 100% feedback from the patientringo wrote:Ok, i see, but wouldn't you need feed back from the patient to determine if they have this problem. A couple lies and he's 100%.
I wouldn't admit to a long term problem if i was an F1 driver. If i lost vision momentarily on the track, i'd rather struggle for a year with it, than lose my job because i admit to have momentary lapses in focus.
So Doc Siskue, is it possible that sunken eye could be affecting him?
Let's say ferrari turn a "blind eye" to signs he could be potential unfit to drive.
