The Felipe Massa-Lewis Hamilton saga just doesn't want to go away after the two once again made contact at the Japanese Grand Prix.
Massa slammed Hamilton after the Singapore GP a fortnight ago after the duo had run-ins during qualifying on Saturday and in the race the next day. Their collision during the race prompted the Brazilian to sarcastically slap and applaud Hamilton during the post-race interviews.
The McLaren driver refused to comment much on the issue in the build-up to the race at Suzuka while Massa told the media he had drawn a line under the issue and claimed he "tried to speak to him [Hamilton], but he didn't want to speak to me".
However, the duo are like two magnets on the race track and had a coming together on Lap 22 in Japan on Sunday while battling for fourth place. The stewards investigated the incident but decided not to take further action.
Hamilton claimed after the race that he "couldn't see him pulling alongside me", but Massa didn't hold back when asked about the issue.
"I don't care, to be honest, about what he [Hamilton] said. The only thing I care about is what he did. He was so slow in 130R and he stayed on the right-hand side," the Brazilian said.
"I was much quicker, so I went to the left-hand side and I braked there. I stayed on my line; he moved his car and touched my car. There's nothing more to say. For what he says, I don't care. I care about what the federation says and what the FIA does.
"They have penalised people for much less this year and this time they didn't do it. It's the second time in a row after the problem in qualifying as well in the last race, and after what happened yesterday. And after many times this year. The FIA needs to take care of that. They are the only ones who can take care of that."
When asked by Autosport if it would not be better for him to speak face-to-face with Hamilton, the Ferrari driver replied: "No. He doesn't learn. As I said before, I don't care. I race against him, against whatever driver in the same way. I don't really care. He has already passed the time to speak, which I tried and he didn't."
