There is no way for KR to know that FM is favoured by the use of Bridgestone tyres, because he has no benchmark: He doesn't know how FM would do on Michelins. Maybe FM would be even faster on Michelins?
And btw, so far only KR made the claims about FM being favoured by Bridgestone tyres. I'll accept it as being the truth when FM confirms it.
Until then it remains an excuse.
Well, unlike Räikkönen, Massa is driver who is full of excuses, so don´t expect him to tell anywhere in near future that he has had somekind of advantage over Kimi for last 1 and half season but still can´t beat him. After he lost fair and square in France last year, he came up with something like: "Kimi was lucky that I had traffic, he was also lucky that he passed Lewis at the start..."
Had Massa said something like that what Kimi said about tyres, you might think it was an excuse. But Kimi usually tells it like it is. When he says that he propably had tyres more to his liking than JPM and that Massa has that advantage now, you should believe him. Or is he really the kind of guy who makes excuses in your eyes?
How would he know then if tyres suit for Massa better than they do for him? Erm, are you for real? These guys have each others telemetry to look at, plus they are professional racing drivers for god sake, they do know what is happening in their team, what are the strengths and weaknesses of their team mate.
