VIDEO: Felipe Massa rolled in scary turn one incident at Hockenheim

Jul 20, 2014, 8:56 AM EDT

Felipe Massa’s German Grand Prix lasted a matter of seconds after he was rolled by Kevin Magnussen at the first corner on the first lap of the race.

Magnussen had taken to the inside of the corner to try and pass the Brazilian, only for Massa to try and sweep through the corner ahead of the McLaren driver. This did not work, causing the Williams car to roll into the gravel.

Thankfully, Massa managed to walk away from the incident unharmed, but with another DNF to his name, he will undoubtedly be very disappointed.

The stewards did investigate the incident, only to decide that it was a racing incident, meaning that no further action will be taken.

    Felipe was fixated on the apex of the turn and saw no car had come up beside him.

    He thought the apex was clear and did leave about a half a car’s space there but there was a full car of Magnussen there.

    Felipe dove for the apex under full throttle and closed the door on Magnussen who Felipe never thought was there.

    Thankfully,Felipe is o.k. and Magnussen was’nt injured.

    Felipe essentially simply took himself out of today’s race at the first turn.

    Sad,because Botta’s performance shows Williams could have well had a two-three podium finish today.

    Better luck next race,Felipe.
