Ferrari’s preparations for the Chinese Grand Prix have got off to a bad start with Felipe Massa needing to change his engine after suffering a problem in first practice. Massa felt something was wrong with his V8 power unit during the second practice session and, after analysis of the engine by the team, it was decided that it would need to be changed.

Despite the penalty, Massa felt that his best chance would be a top five finish – and he was well aware that it leaves teammate Schumacher having to fight Renault’s Fernando Alonso and Giancarlo Fisichella alone at the front.

This really bad news for Ferrari & Schumacher. Given the 2 points difference in both Constructor’s & Driver’s Championship, Felipe was to play a major role, and this will definately change their plans for the race. We are sure we are going to have a very exciting race weekend at Shanghai.
