Ferrari issued Massa team order three times

Felipe Massa received three team orders before he moved over for Fernando Alonso at Hockenheim, it has emerged.

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport made the claim, as the controversy about prohibited team orders continues to rage days later in the Hungaroring paddock.

The report said Alonso, who was later heard on the radio to say the situation was "ridiculous", began to complain to the Ferrari pitwall about Massa's pace shortly after his pitstop.
