Massa handed 20-second penalty

Felipe Massa, Ferrari, Canadian GPFelipe Massa has had 20 seconds added to his race time at the Canadian Grand Prix for a pitlane speeding offence.

The Brazilian pitted in the closing stages of the Montreal event after damaging his front wing in a collision with Michael Schumacher at the final chicane.

He broke the speed limit during that late stop but, because it came in the closing stages of the event, there was not enough time to give him a drive-through penalty.

In lieu of that penalty, Massa had 20 seconds added to his race time, although it will not affect his 15th position finish because he was a lap clear of the next car - Lotus' Heikki Kovalainen.
