Bookies give odds for another Massa, Hamilton collision

7:49 am on 11 November 2011

Ferrari's Felipe Massa and McLaren's Lewis Hamilton kept their Formula One feud simmering as bookmakers offered odds on them colliding again in Abu Dhabi this weekend.

The two drivers have had a magnetic attraction for each other on the track this season, chalking up six incidents in 17 races.

The most recent was in India at the end of last month, with Massa punished by stewards for causing a collision and then presenting himself as the wronged party.

Asked whether he had spoken to Hamilton since India, Massa said that there had been no conversation and he was still clearly aggrieved at getting the drive-through penalty.

Hamilton said he felt the whole incident was 'done and dusted' without any need for a meeting.

William Hill were taking bets at 14-1 on a seventh coming together at the Yas Marina circuit while Ladbrokes offered a less generous 5-1.
