The Brazilian was taken out of the race at the first corner, his Martini-liveried car struck from behind by the Caterham of Kamui Kobayashi. Both cars were out on the spot and the former Ferrari men crossed lines after the clash. “You cannot brake at 50 metres on a start like that,” Massa said as the race continued without him. “I don’t see a difference between what happened to his start and what happened to Grosjean when he did a crazy start at Spa.” The incident to which Massa referred was when Romain Grosjean surfed over the top of Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari at the first corner. The Lotus driver was given a one-race suspension for the clash. Post-race, Caterham and Kobayashi explained that the incident was caused by a brake problem. “I’m sorry for the team and for Felipe that both our races ended early,” the Japanese driver said. “From the initial data it looked like I had a brake system issue which obviously meant I couldn’t do much about the contact and when we got the car back and looked at the information in much more detail it was clear that was the problem. "After the race I went to the Stewards and they went through the data from the car and confirmed this was the case.” At this stage, it is not known if this was a rear-brake fly-by-wire (or brake-by-wire?) problem. 10 GPWEEK.com // 10 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
