MILAN -- Felipe Massa was driving his Ferrari too fast.

Not on the track, but on the way to it.

Massa was given a $214 speeding ticket by Italian police this weekend on his way to the Italian Grand Prix race for exceeding the speed limit in his silver-colored Ferrari 458.

The Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Brazilian was also docked six points on his driver's license.

The ticket didn't seem to affect Massa in Sunday's race, when he finished fourth for one of his best results this season.

Still, Massa's contract is up at the end of this season and speculation is swirling that Ferrari won't renew it.
