Felipe Massa wins 2006 Turkish Grand Prix
Sunday, August 27, 2006
Massa began at pole position and capitalised on an incident right at the start, when's Alonso braked hard, causing team mate to lose control as he attempted to avoid contact. The incident disrupted much of the initial grid behind them, with multiple contacts involving Nick Heidfeld, Pedro de la Rosa, Ralf Schumacher, Scott Speed, Kimi Raikkonen, Takuma Sato, Tiago Monteiro and Jarno Trulli, forcing many of them to take a pit stop at the end of the lap.
Massa's Ferrari teammate Michael Schumacher lost the second position to Alonso while the German was awaiting Massa on the pit-lane. On the dying laps of the race Schumacher pushed hard on Alonso until the finish line. They finished together, with the official timing unable to split them, and Alonso won by protecting his line into the final corner.
