Massa livid at Hamilton antics...

...and commented: "I said before that he just won't use his mind yesterday in qualifying and again it happened in this race."

SINGAPORE, Sept 25, 2011 (AFP) - Furious Felipe Massa of Ferrari lashed out for the second time in two days at Lewis Hamilton after the warring pair again came together on the floodlit track at the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday.

Brazilian Massa, who finished ninth in an incident-packed race, was again the victim of a collision with the Briton in the early stages.

Massa was livid with Hamilton for the accident that handed the Briton a drive-through penalty.

"I said before that he just won't use his mind yesterday in qualifying and again it happened in this race," said a clearly angry Massa.

"It could have caused a big accident this time and he is paying for it and he just doesn't understand it.

"How many times this year has this happened? I think the FIA have to keep giving him penalties so he learns and understands. Maybe his father can help."

His team-mate Fernando Alonso, who came home in fourth, had no such complaints.

"The start was good again, we recovered some places, but then (Mark) Webber overtook us. Red Bull should be in front of us because they are much quicker," he said.

"Fourth was the maximum we could do. We are racing with McLaren some races and Mercedes in others.

"The drivers' championship is gone and in the constructers' it's extremely difficult to catch McLaren. Behind us there is no threat, in front it's very difficult to catch up.

"So in the final races we will try to enjoy it and test the 2012 car. We have to use the last five races to do some experimental things.
