Massa told to wreck Hamilton's race

The furore over the Singapore GP is refusing to die down with fresh reports revealing that Felipe Massa was told to "destroy" Lewis Hamilton's race.

Repairs after crashing into Felipe Massa.

Hamilton and Massa had yet another coming together at the Marina Bay circuit two weeks ago when Hamilton drove into the back of Massa's Ferrari.

The accident left Massa with a right rear puncture and Hamilton with a broken front wing and a drive-through penalty.

However, the Daily Mail report that in the official video edit of the race, it appears as if Massa's goal for the Grand Prix was to ruin Hamilton's race.

Speaking over the radio to the Brazilian, Massa's race engineer Rob Smedley said in the build-up to the incident on lap 12: "Hold Hamilton as much as we can.

"Destroy his race as much as we can. Come on boy!"

After the race an angry Massa confronted Hamilton while he was giving a post-race interview to Dutch TV and accused the McLaren driver of not using "his mind" and potentially causing "a big accident."
