If Felipe Massa would let his Scuderia Ferrari team mate Fernando Alonso overtake him, like he did in Germany, this weekend he could end up in jail. In Brazil there is a law that protects the fans at sporting events and it can lead to a prison sentence of 6 years for a sportsperson that is convicted of fraud or the counterfeiting of a sportsgame.

Paulo Castilho, solicitor of the court in Sao Paulo, said: "If that happens (if Massa obeys team orders and let Alonso pass), he will leave the interlagos circuit in the buoys."
