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.
