Felipe Massa believes the design of the curbs at the Buddh circuit's Turn 9 should be altered for future years after his crash in qualifying.
The Brazilian smashed his Ferrari's right-front suspension when he went over the low main curb and hit the raised curb beyond it on the inside of the turn. He then slid into the barriers at the next corner.
"It's a high-speed corner where you have very low curbs, and then you have this high sausage curb," said Massa. "I think when you have high speed like that, the car has a lot of downforce, a lot of power to the ground, and when you hit something concrete like that, you can have a failure in the suspension and that's what happened to me."
He warned that there could be repeats in his incident in tomorrow's race, as he does not think his error was a large one.
"I didn't take the curb too strongly, I took a little bit of curb and then my suspension didn't survive," said Massa. "So it can be a problem for the race."
The Ferrari driver advocates a larger single curb rather than the current two-tier design.
"I think in a high-speed corner like that, it's better to do real curbs, a bit higher," Massa said. "That's the only thing I think should be changed for the future. I think it's important to discuss it. We cannot change anything for tomorrow, but I think for next year they can do a better job for those kind of curbs."
Massa ended up sixth on the grid after the crash, and is sure it cost him a better starting position.
"I am disappointed because I think we had a big chance to start with both cars in the top four," he said. "It was not possible because of this crash.
"I'm sure I would have improved on this lap and the position was supposed to be much better than what it is now, and I lost one set of soft tires as well when I crashed."
