Felipe Massa - DNF - 7.5/10

A bit of a hiding to nothing for Massa after a front wing inspection showed damage pre-race and the team didn’t have a spare of the new specification. Reverting to the old front wing was a change of specification and therefore breached parc ferme rules, turning 10th on the grid into a pit lane start. Drove well in his attempts to recover and was eyeing points having been in the top ten before his final stop, but following Gutierrez his brake temperatures went through the roof and Williams retired the car on safety grounds.
