Felipe Massa accepts Verstappen apology

Published on 19 Apr 2017 12:54

Felipe Massa has called a close to the latest controversy surrounding Max Verstappen. In Bahrain, the Dutch teenager hit out at Brazil as a nation following a qualifying run-in with Felipe Massa.

Massa responded angrily, and the Red Bull driver duly apologised via social media. When asked about the apology, Massa said on Tuesday: "To tell the truth, he was hot headed and said things he should not have."

"But I get along really well with him, I have no problems with him and to be honest, I was only playing with him," Massa is quoted by Brazil's Globo. "And I think he understood, because he apologised and that's the way it should have gone. He's a cool guy, a great driver and I'm sure with age, he's going to get better," the Williams driver added.

I think Massa's actions has been justified in this case.
