Felipe Massa has admitted he ignored a call over the radio to let team mate Fernando Alonso pass him.
After hearing his race engineer Rob Smedley come over the radio and say β”Multifunction strategy A. Multifunction strategy A. Now please.β Many expected Massa to let Alonso through, however nothing happened and Alonso overtook Massa on the track 12 laps later
Massa said “It was an instruction, I am never happy with an instruction.
“We already discussed it, but for sure it was an unfortunate race because of the drive-through. It was not an instruction when he overtook me on the track. The instruction came much earlier.”
