Massa’s ‘Rajada’ on Fernando Alonso and his reasons for their inevitable comparisons when they were teammates


Felipe Massa He doesn’t have fond memories of his time at Ferrari with Fernando Alonso. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that comparing the results with the Asturian leaves the Brazilian in a very bad place and several steps below the quality shown by the Asturian. But the Brazilian has a reason for this. Within ‘Track Limits’ Podcast, Felipe did not hold back when he confirmed that Fernando’s way of working “divided” the team and affected him in a psychological way that led him to make more mistakes. That is, he does not blame himself for the bad results and he blames himself Fernando. Unbelievable.

Before translating the words of Felipe Massa and his accusations about the Asturian’s way of working, it should be noted that Alonso managed to fight for three titles with an inferior car against Vettel’s Red Bull. Alonso managed to be 2nd in the F1 championship in 2010, 2012 and 2013, holding the title especially in the last two rounds of 2010 and 2012. We repeat: in an inferior car.

While Alonso was 2nd in those years, Massa was 6th in 2010, 7th in 2012 and 8th in 2013. In that car where Massa was 8th with 112 points, Alonso managed to be runner-up with 242. But According to Massa, it all has to do with the Asturian way of working.

Felipe Massa’s accusations against Alonso

“I want him to be in front of me and he’s in front of me. I don’t think I’ve had any problems with him outside the car, apart from the fight in 2007 (when Alonso was at McLaren). I’m always riding. good with him as a person. But not about what he was telling me. This is not what he told the team either. He always has a standard way of working, using his power. He has a lot of power and he tries to use it to get everyone on his side. “I think it split the team in half.”he commented.

“So it’s not exactly how he worked. But that’s how he is, you know? And I think the only problem with splitting the team in half is that it’s not good for the whole. I think “To beat him you have to have your day, but I’ve had my day in many races… however, something happened because he put me in a difficult mental condition that led me to make a mistake or something could have happened not perfect”He added, blaming the man from Oviedo for some of his mistakes.

“It’s unfair, I can’t say they did anything wrong, but the way you work, the way the team looks at it, it’s really uncomfortable,” Massa pointed out, adding an example to his speech.

“I remember one time when we started developing the simulator, because Red Bull had a better simulator, even McLaren compared to Ferrari, so we were working very hard on the simulator, him and me. Suddenly he came in the middle of the season and said: ‘I don’t want to go to the simulator anymore because it’s useless, the simulator doesn’t help.’”, he commented.

“So he decided to stop working on the simulator. But I also continued to work because I wasn’t in good shape and that season I didn’tOur car is nice. So I worked very hard. And suddenly, we go to Singapore and he wins the race. After the race, Montezemolo, who is our president, went to the media to say: ‘It’s great to see Fernando, how hard he works with the team, every week in the factory, in the simulator, meetings every week.’”Felipe Massa explains what happened at the 2010 Singapore GP.

According to Massa, it affected him and led him to make mistakes and not be at his best. “Again, it’s something that completely blows your mind. I mean… Alonso is an incredible driver, his talent is incredible but, you know, all the other details you need, you need to have them to be comfortable.”he finished.
