Team bosses tell Hamilton, Massa to bury the hatchet
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Delhi: The collision brother of modern day Formula One racing, McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Felipe Massa have been urged by their team bosses to settle scores in an amicable way before things turn nasty after their sixth collision of the season at the inaugural Indian GP.
"They`re young drivers but they`re not that young," said Martin Whitmarsh, the McLaren team principal. "They`re men. They`ve got to figure it out for themselves. They have to sort it out. They`ve been coming together too frequently. Clearly Lewis and Felipe are magnetic."
Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali was serious in his concern, who when asked whether the pair were "magnetic" replied: "Who is the plus and who is the minus?”
"We can sit down together and play cards but it will not solve the issue. One thing that is crucial in my view is that we need to make sure there is a coherent approach from the stewards about things that happen on the track.”
"We cannot avoid the fact there were a lot of kisses between them on the track. We cannot have these things being bigger than they are because they will be on the mind of the drivers, which is not good."
The collision between the two at the Indian GP occurred in the 24th lap.
