Who was Massa racing? Those couple of slower cars or Button and Webber? Ferrari had to react or risk losing more ground to those ahead on fresh tyres.
About the slow pit stops... I think pit lane traffic is responsible for that or did you want an unsafe release for Massa and a subsequent drive through as to moan some more about Ferrari's treatment of Massa. And you really shouldn't be moaning because the 2.6 seconds Massa lost to Alonso during that first round of pit stops would barely have been enough to release him ahead of Rosberg in any event. Furthermore that time which you claim as critical was negated by the safety car although without the possible track position.
First, I'm not moaning, I'm pointing to a fact, which was; Massa's pistops were slower(a lot) than Alonso's. Second, it was more than 2.6 seconds and a regular piststot would have been enough to put him in front of Rosberg. I'm not saying it was on purpose but screw up Ferrari did. It hapens a lot more frequently with Massa, just saying.
