It ain’t over ‘til it’s over … FERRARI, and in particular Felipe Massa, were left to contemplate what might have been after an engine failure three laps from the end of the Hungarian Grand Prix robbed them of a deserved win. Massa had taken the lead with a bold move on Lewis Hamilton at the race start, and after the Mclaren driver experienced a puncture, Massa’s win looked to be safely in the bag. He, and the team, were naturally gutted to have had it wrenched from them. “Unfortunately, racing can be a cruel sport,”said a philosophical Massa after the race. “We had given it our all but these things happen. Now we must not give up, but instead we must react quickly. There are seven races to go and 70 points up for grabs, which means there is still plenty of time to make up ground. Our rivals are strong but we have shown we are at their level.” Ferrari Team Manager Luca Baldisserri shared his driver’s disappointments. “It hurts to see a car stop with a failure just a few laps from the end when you are solidly in the lead. “It’s a real shame because Felipe drove an extraordinary race: a perfect start, always a fast pace and a great management of the situation in the final stages. Today we showed our package is up to the job in terms of performance, but we lacked the necessary reliability. “We must continue to work to improve still further, as indeed our competitors are doing. We can expect some weeks of hard work ahead of the next race where we want to achieve what slipped from our grasp today in the very last moments.” 26
