Talk of a special meeting this weekend to discuss Lewis Hamilton's aggressive driving in 2011 was played down in the Suzuka paddock on Thursday.

Multiple reports had said the drivers' meeting with Charlie Whiting would go ahead, but Grand Prix Drivers' Association president Rubens Barrichello and his countryman Felipe Massa - at the centre of the storm in Singapore two weeks ago - indicated it would be business as usual in Japan.

"What's past is past and we need to think about the future," said Massa. "I have no reason to speak to him now about this as the matter is closed as far as I am concerned."

GPDA president Barrichello also played down the incident and suggestions of a special drivers' meeting.

"I'm not saying everything (with Hamilton's driving) is okay, but as far as I'm concerned it would be too unfair to pinpoint this or that," he is quoted by PA Sport.

Asked specifically about the 'special meeting', Barrichello added: "I don't think that's happening. I think someone has made that up."
