Felipe Massa on Thursday said he overshot his starting box on the Spa grid two weeks ago due to a visibility problem.

The FIA is currently investigating how it did not notice the Brazilian driver's Ferrari get a head-start in the Belgian Grand Prix.

"I think I am one of the drivers who sits lowest in the cockpit and the front of our car is quite high, so I definitely did not see the line on the grid very well, which is why I was a bit over it," Massa said at Monza.

"To be honest I was lucky that this was not noticed during the race!"

The 2008 championship runner-up also revealed that Ferrari, like many other teams including McLaren, Renault and Red Bull, have not decided whether or not to use an F-duct rear wing this weekend.

"We will try it tomorrow and then decide which way to go for the rest of the weekend," said Massa.
