Comments by Felipe Massa's father suggest the Brazilian driver's camp is unimpressed with the events of last weekend's German grand prix.
After standing miserably on the Hockenheim podium, the 29-year-old insisted it was his decision to pull over and let his Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso win.
But Luiz Antonio Massa, who a year ago was sitting at his son's bedside in a Budapest hospital, has declared that Felipe did in fact obey a team order.
The comments follow a period of criticism in the Brazilian press, with writers saying Massa showed a lack of courage.
"It is regrettable and unfortunate that Ferrari took this decision," Massa Snr is quoted in Italian language reports, including the Libero newspaper.
