Brazilian Ferrari racer Felipe Massa found himself on the wrong side of the Italian authorities when he was slapped with a speeding fine on his way to the Grand Prix.


Police in Monzo, in the northern Lombardy region, were not impressed by Massa’s speedy drive through their neighbourhood and handed him a €162 fine, La Gazzetta dello Sport reported.

Five police officers appeared on the scene to impose the fine, while locals gathered around Massa’s sports car.

The 32-year-old Brazilian was cruising through the area at the weekend in his silver Ferrari 458, which can reach 100km per hour in 3.4 seconds.

His driving licence was also docked six points, although Massa was allowed to go on to the Formula 1 race where he came fourth.
