Felipe Massa clinched his first podium of the season when he finished third at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday giving Ferrari its biggest points haul in 46 races.
The Ferrari driver started the race from ninth, after he was handed a three-place grid penalty for impeding Mark Webber in qualifying, but the Brazilian made up places and even finished ahead of the two Red Bull drivers at Catalunya.
“When you start from far back everything’s more complicated, but I managed to get away well and I immediately had a fantastic pace,” Massa said.
The double podium, with teammate Fernando Alonso winning the race, meant that Ferrari collected 40 points in what was its biggest haul since the 2010 Korean Grand Prix.
