Massa: It's like a movie

Massa: It's like a movie

Felipe Massa is "fine" after his third accident in two weeks put him out of qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Contending with a wet circuit, Massa, who was outside the top ten at the time, appeared to brake on the slippery white line, putting the Ferrari driver into a slide.

The slide ended when he slammed into the barriers at Turn 3 side on.

"I didn't see the video yet, but people tell me I braked over the white line," Massa said. "Maybe it's possible, because when I braked I just went sideways straight away.

"I'm really disappointed with what happened. It's like a movie you know, three things happened straight away like that.

"I'm very disappointed, not happy, but the race is tomorrow, so we need to concentrate on tomorrow, and try to do a good race tomorrow.

"We don't gain anything by going to the past, we need to go to the present and the future.

"It's true that it's not nice to start in the back, but it's also true that this is a race, this is a track that every year many things happen during the race, so we need to concentrate on that and try to do a good race tomorrow."

The Brazilian confirmed that he is okay after the crash unlike after his Monaco accidents which left him with a sore neck.

"Physically it's fine, this crash was nothing compared to Monaco, much slower. The crash I had here is more... psychological than physical!" he told adamcooperf1.com

"So we have to forget about that and start a different thing."

Massa will start Sunday's grand prix 16th on the grid.
