Williams deputy team principal Claire Williams has confirmed that Felipe Massa is suffering from bouts of vertigo due to an inner ear issue.

The issue that the Brazilian is suffering is reminiscent of the problems that Verizon IndyCar Series driver Will Power suffered last year which forced him to sit out the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg.

Williams confirmed that Massa will undergo further medical checks but with the Formula One summer break coming up.
