His driving yesterday was pretty good, not the best. He kept Button behind him until Button got annoyed and decided to take the shortcut. He also had an excellent start like the old Massa we knew. Unfortunately the strategy used didn't play out in his favor due to him struggling with the harder tires and not being able to do a two stop. I also think his days are numbered at Ferrari and wish he could return to his old self, but the accident did seem to have some negative effects.
If you want to totally sacrifice your race then pretty much any driver can keep another one behind them. The real skill is keeping someone behind you and maintaining the race pace. Losing that amount of time to those ahead and behind of you at the start of a 58 lap race is not the sign of someone who's tactically aware.
