SAO PAULO, Brazil - Felipe Massa was penalised for going too fast in the pits lane and drove into the McLaren garage by mistake but still sent his home crowd crazy with third in the 2014 Brazilian Formula 1 GP.He was mobbed by a crowd of Brazilian reporters in the cramped Interlagos paddock, his young son alongside in a T-shirt declaring 'My Daddy's a Williams driver'. As he told retired triple F1 champion and compatriot Nelson Piquet on the podium, he made so many mistakes and yet was so happy.'GRATEFUL FOR THE PACE'Massa said: "I had the drive-through, the five seconds for the penalty for the speed limiter. Also I stopped in the McLaren (pits) because it was similar and it just was prepared before my garage but the car was fantastic, I'm so grateful for the pace." The podium was his second of the 2014 season with resurgent Williams, the former champions he joined after eight years at Ferrari, and first in front of his home crowd since he finished third in 2012. His last win, in 2008, when he missed winning the Drivers' title by one point, was also at Interlagos. He said after finishing behind Mercedes title rivals Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton: "I think the race was amazing... everything that happened in my race today." He explained that when he braked at the pits-lane entry he pressed the speed limiter but it didn't work properly and he had to brake again.MCLAREN MIX-UPHe made up the time but when he came in for a subsequent pit stop it all went wrong again and this time he could only blame himself. He glided to a halt in front of the bemused McLaren mechanics, who hurriedly waved him on to the Williams crew waiting a few metres further along.Massa said: "I stopped in the McLaren (pits) because they changed our garage at this race and we are a lot more in the middle and McLaren with the similar colour - not white but, you know - I thought it was our garage."His fans kept on singing and screaming anyway, throughout and after the race.Massa said: "It's amazing. The whole energy that I had this weekend, it's difficult to explain. Difficult to explain the emotion."The points helped third-placed Williams stretch its lead over Ferrari to 44 points with one race remaining.Stay with Wheels24 for the 2014 F1 season – fresh reports every day.
