But since Massa came into the pits, and in a way penalized himself, it's hard to cry foul. I watched the Ferrari pit stops on a race replay, and both cars were in synch in the first three stops, each coming in close together and each getting relatively the same amout of time in pit stops. If Kimi had been able to run the rest of the race after his third pit stop, then Massa should have been able to also.

And even If they did change position?
Tell me what is bad in it?
Otherwise it would be stupid to hold the positions like they are.
Tom wrote:yarbles, Massa could have oh so easily let Kimi through by 'sliding wide' at a corner and no one would have batted an eyelid. Instead he ran low on fuel (perhaps Ferrari expected a red flag and tried to make sure he was leading when that flag came out?) and that allowed 3 cars through. Ferrari surely would not allow 3 cars to overtake when they could have made 1 look natural.
Rob W wrote:I have two comments about the race:
1 - Massa seemed to pass someone on the last lap by driving completely off the track? I watched the reply and it seems he did. Surely he can't keep that place?
2 - If every team was told to use full wet tires, and surely the FIA has a way of communicating this and receiving confirmation from every team, shouldn't Ferrari be excluded from the results for ignoring the race director? No-one else gets a second chance when they ignore the set black/white rules and directions from the race director. (E.g. Montoya being black-flagged the other year for exiting the pits as the pit-exit showed a red light)
It sounds like the only team doing it (when necessary) is Ferrari
