"We're never happy with instructions," he said. "We already discussed it. Whatever happened in the race was not over any instruction, he overtook me on the track. We fought on the track.

"The unfortunate thing was the drive-through... it destroyed my race completely."

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali refused to publicly criticise Massa for disobeying orders.

"At the end of the day Fernando overtook him on the track," he said. "I can understand his feeling. The team will totally support him until the end of the season, no problem."

Domenicali was happy with Ferrari's weekend after they stretched their second-place lead over Mercedes in the constructors' championship to 10 points.

"This is the target with four races to go," said Domenicali. "It's fundamental to keep our engineering staff with their heads up because we want
to keep that position up to the end."
