Ferrari’s team boss Frederic Vasseur comments on Felipe Massa’s plan to launch a legal action to overturn the results of the 2008 championship.

Felipe Massa lost the 2008 title battle to Lewis Hamilton in the final race of the season, however earlier this year he announced he intends to change that result by challenging the outcome of the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix.

Last week reported that Massa decided to step up his legal challenge by sending a ‘Letter Before Claim’ to the FIA and Formula One Management, in which he provides details of his case and announces his intention to pursue the matter in court.

Since at the time Massa was driving for Ferrari, ahead of the Dutch Grand Prix the team’s current team boss Frederic Vasseur was asked to comment on the situation.

“As you can imagine, I don’t want to make any comment on this matter,” Vasseur said.

“I have a good relationship with all the stakeholders, and it’s quite tricky. The circumstances were completely exceptional.

“But more generally, and not about Felipe, I think we [Ferrari] are also trying to push the FIA to know the result of the event at the chequered flag.

“I don’t want to make any comments but for sure it will be strange.”

The Frenchman added he personally is not in favour on changing race results after the race has finished.

“I’m not a big fan to change the result of a race 15 minutes after the chequered flag,” he concluded.

We recently took an in-depth look at the situation, and examined why this whole case has absolutely nothing to do with Lewis Hamilton. You can read the article here.
