Massa pushing ahead with crashgate legal action

Felipe Massa is pushing ahead with plans to sue Formula 1 authorities in order to be declared 2008 world champion. “I spoke about it at the time with Ferrari and with the team’s lawyers at Maranello and they told me that there was nothing they could do,” Massa said earlier this year. “Back then, there was a rule that a world championship classification was untouchable after the FIA awards ceremony at the end of the year,” Ecclestone said. “After Bernie Ecclestone spoke about it, we are trying to understand – legally – if there is any chance of looking at it again,” Massa told the Brazilian publication Esportelandia. Massa said there are even precedents in Formula 1 for similar incidents – like what happened with McLaren in 2007 over the ‘spygate’ scandal.
