Massa Less Than Impressed By British Commentators Bias

Felipe Massa gave a stark answer to British radio commentator David Croft after asking about the incident between Massa and Hamilton in the Japanese Grand Prix today.

After Massa tipped McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton into a spin it is alleged that the Ferrari pitcrew celebrated the Brit’s misfortune.

Ina post race interview, David Croft who works for BBC Radio 5 Live “Was it right for your teammates in the pit garage to be celebrating when you crashed into a rival?”

To which Felipe Massa replied “Are you English?” retorted Massa. “Is that your point of view?”

I find it quite entertaining that a British commentator feels the need to criticse the Ferrari mechanics for celebrating another teams mis-fortunes, because after all wasn’t it Ted Kravitz on ITV F1 live laughing at Ferrari’s pit light system going wrong and finding it hilarious that the McLaren mechanics were egging the Ferrari mechanics on down the pitlane to sort it out? I am growing to despise the disgusting bias of the British media too.
