Yellow FlagFelipe Massa can expect to be penalized ahead of qualifying for his home Grand Prix after an incident during free practice on Saturday. The Ferrari driver, who won at Interlagos a year ago and posted the fastest lap of the one hour practice session, is alleged to have overtaken a car while yellow flags were being waved for Robert Kubica’s stricken BMW Sauber.

Last year in Hungary, Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher were penalized for overtaking while, respectively, yellow and red flags were waved during the same Saturday morning practice session. Stewards penalized both drivers by adding two seconds to their best lap times in each of the three sections of the subsequent qualifying session. They ultimately both dropped out of qualifying in the second part, leaving them 12th (Schumacher) and 15th (Alonso) on the grid.
