Felipe Massa was left raging after the Singapore Grand Prix, a race which saw the Brazilian suffer a right-rear puncture due to contact with Lewis Hamilton. The moment followed another in qualifying, when the pair almost collided at Turn 19.Massa pits with a puncture, FIA must punish Hamilton

The touch during the race came as the duo battled on Lap 12, with Hamilton challenging on the outside of Memorial corner and losing part of his front wing as Massa’s tyre deflated. The McLaren driver was handed a Drive-Through Penalty by FIA race stewards including former Grand Prix winner Heinz-Harald Frentzen.

“Again, he cannot use his mind,” Ferrari’s Massa told BBC Sport of Hamilton. “Even in qualifying, so can you imagine in the race? He could have caused a big accident and he’s paying for that. I was in the middle (of the track) and then got a puncture, which cost me a lot.

“When the Safety Car came in I had the wrong tyres. The FIA must look at this and penalise him all the time. He can’t even listen to his father, so can you imagine he listens to me?”

After the race, Massa was reported to have discussed the moment with Hamilton in the FIA Media Pen, with the former nudging the latter’s shoulder.
