Massa defends under-fire Grosjean

While most were lambasting Romain Grosjean in the wake of the Hungarian GP, Felipe Massa has come to the Lotus driver's defence.


Grosjean was penalised not once but twice on Sunday, the first time being during the grand prix and again after it.

During the 70-lap race he was hit with a drive-through penalty for overtaking Massa outside the track limits.

The Brazilian, though, reckons that was "completely" wrong and undeserving.

"If he took the penalty because of what he did with me, that's completely wrong," the Ferrari driver told Autosport.

"He didn't go four wheels outside, he went with two wheels. Two wheels is possible."

Grosjean's second punishment was a 20-second post-race penalty for his part in his collision with Jenson Button that damaged the McLaren driver's car.

That part Button says was just. "I couldn't go any more left," he said.

"That's it, really. Unless I'm on the grass, which is not where I want to be when I'm braking for a corner, he had no way of not hitting me. I obviously didn't realise how narrow the circuit was at that corner...

"It could have been a lot worse than it was. It could have ended both of our races. I was quite lucky. I think our cars are robust."

Ciao Jules, F1 remembers the affable Frenchman
