Felippe Massa is fine and looking forward tot he race after crashing out in practice session one on Friday.Â Massa had hit Fernando Alonso’s oil form a blown engine on the Renault and hit the barriers very hard.Â It appears Grace’s “kiss-o-death” is working.
“It was a big crash, but that’s part of the game and I have had much worse accidents in my career,”
“I didn’t see any flags and I had approached the corner in the usual way and then I totally lost control of the car under braking. I tried to slow down, but the impact was still pretty violent.
“The most important thing is that we were able to fix the car and in the end we didn’t lose that much time as it wasn’t planned for me to do many laps in the morning. I want to thank all the lads for the work they did: they were fantastic and they didn’t stop for a moment right up to the very end of the second session.
“We came to Silverstone with a good starting point after the tests we did here last week and I think we are going in the right direction. I am pleased with the balance of the car and its performance on both types of tyre we have here from Bridgestone.”
