Massa: Penalty still irks

Massa: Penalty still irks

Felipe Massa may have achieved his first podium result of the season in Spain, however, the Brazilian was struggling to shrug off his grid penalty.

Massa qualified in sixth place for Sunday's 66-lap race at the Barcelona circuit but was forced to start P9 when he was hit with a three-place penalty for impeding Mark Webber.

And although he still managed to book a place on the podium - his first of the campaign - Massa admitted he was still not happy about Saturday's ruling.

"I'm disappointed because of what happened yesterday," said the 32-year-old. "I didn't cause any issues for him."

Massa tunnelled that disappointment into Sunday's efforts which proved to do the trick as he finished in third place.

"I tried to be aggressive, passing people and I tried to undercut people as well by stopping before them," he added.

"We then struggled a bit with the tyres to make them survive every stint. But I think the race was very good."
