Felipe Massa said Lewis Hamilton “could have caused a big accident” in their collision during the Singapore Grand Prix.
The Ferrari driver referred to their run-in during qualifying yesterday, saying: “My thoughts is that again, I told you yesterday, he cannot use his mind. Even in qualifying, so you can imagine in the race.
“So, again, you know, what he did could have caused a big accident. And he’s paying for it, that the problem, he doesn’t understand, even paying for a problem, you know?
“Anyway, the problem was that I was in the middle so I had a puncture in my tyre and I pay a lot. I was not even lucky on the safety car because I’d stopped for the super softs in that moment to gain lap time.
“But them after five laps, six laps, the safety car came inside, and I had the wrong tyres to finish the race. So I was not very lucky as well with the strategy.
“And also, again, something happened with a guy who did how many times something with me this year? So many times.
“As I said it’s important the FIA is looking and penalising him all the time he is going in the car because he cannot think about it.”
Massa confronted Hamilton while the McLaren driver was conducting a television interview after the race.
