Alonso and Massa relationship cooling
9 May, 2010
May 9 (GMM) Felipe Massa is not sure he would attempt to overtake his teammate on a pit entry road.
Fernando Alonso caused a stir in China three weeks ago when he passed the sister Ferrari driven by Massa on the way into the pits.
When asked if he would do it again, the Spaniard answered recently: “Absolutely yes.”
But amid rumours of growing tension between the red-clad pair, Massa was asked the same question by the Spanish newspaper Marca.
“Maybe not,” was the Brazilian’s response.
When asked to elaborate, Massa said: “I don’t know, only maybe not. What I mean is that there could have been an accident, but actually it (Alonso’s pass) was successful because I messed up the previous corner.”
Asked if he would try a pit entry move if Alonso also messed up a preceding corner, the 29-year-old insisted: “Maybe yes or maybe not, who knows.”
