Ferrari 248 - Top View As reported on

Massa’s engine was said to have suffered from the same problems which apparently caused David Coulthard to blow the Ferrari V8 in his Red Bull right after he crossed the finish line in Bahrain. The Scotsman will also be penalised ten grid positions for changing his engine. Had it blown before the finish he would have been able to change it without penalty.

What was important, he added, was that Schumacher’s motor did not have problems. Friday’s first practice session saw not only Schumacher take it slow but also the other leading contenders, including the driver who last year broke Schumacher’s five-year title streak, Renault’s Fernando Alonso .
