Massa: "It's true my pace wasn't amazing..."

"It's true my pace wasn't amazing today, but that could have had something to do with the fact my floor was damaged, after I hit something at Turn 6; maybe a part from another car."

Don't be so hard on yourself Massa, I thought it was pretty amazing you finished within 30 seconds of me, in fifth place in a race-winning car.
massa   Felipe Massa
I think my floor was damaged Fernando, I might have hit something.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I think that must be it Massa, maybe you ran over a hobbit.
massa   Felipe Massa
At least I am very happy that we are finally making progress and I think I can be up there in Germany.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Not so sure about progress.....oh, wait a minute, I nearly sat on my winners trophy there. I also hope you do well in Germany so your engineer can ask you to move over for me again.
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
We must continue our beautiful lifes working for Ferrari, everything for Ferrari, my being, the fans, cars, Felipe will always help his Ferrari family.

I have that radio exchange on my iPod - "OK, so, Fernando is faster than you. Can you confirm you understood that message?" Sunk in yet Massa?
nico   Nico Rosberg
I feel for you Felipe, my own race was compromised as I had to run a long stint on one set of option tyres. I also think our team has made progress and hope to do well in Germany.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Touching empathy there Britney. Keep it up, look how many victories that attitude has got you in 98 attempts.
nico   Nico Rosberg
I believe I did finish ahead of you in Britain Michael.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
You destroyed me Britney, I drove a lap with no wing, took a stop-and-go for nerfing off Kobayashi, and still only finished 17 seconds behind you. Sixth place, wow, well done, must put you right up there in the championship.
Kobayashi   Kamui Kobayashi
You are indeed a great master Schumachersan, and one of the most feared elders. I must humbly express my sadness at your surprise attack on me. I seek the help of the spirits to ease my suffering.
rondennis   Ron Dennis
Plenty of spirits will do the trick Kamui, a couple of cases of Johnny Walker will erase weeks from your memory.
Ambrosia   Jerome d'Ambrosio
I thought Felipe was supposed to be good, he used to beat Kimi at Ferrari didn't he?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Mmmmm, an interesting point Ambrosia, maybe the rally king can explain this one for us?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Spare us the details Raikonnen, strange how they retained Massa and you're desperately driving anything with an engine in it, badly.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Lucky I didn't stay at Ferrari and make him look really crap.
IceMan   Kimi Raikonnen
I was having a shit.
