FIA to take another look at Perez/Massa Montreal clash

The FIA could take another look at the Felipe Massa/Sergio Perez incident at the Canadian GP after Force India claimed that it had “new elements” to back up its case.

Perez received a five-place grid penalty for this weekend after the last lap incident.

The Austrian GP stewards will examine the Force India evidence at 9am on Friday, and if they decide that new elements have indeed emerged they will convene to formally consider if there should be any impact on the original decision.

The FIA rules allow the Austrian stewards to take the place of their counterparts in Canada, who due to logistical issues cannot reconvene in their own right.

“We know he’s a good driver,” said Perez of Massa. “He has his opinion, I have my opinion. We just have to sit down. We will get the opportunity tomorrow with the FIA to review the accident once again as we believe we have enough evidence to prove that I did nothing wrong.”
