Among Alonso having won a race and normally out-paced his new team-mate so far this season, Massa lies 14 points at the back ahead of the Turkish GP, meaning a podium place would be required to leapfrog his team-mate in Istanbul, should Alonso not attain.

When asked by the BBC whether Ferrari would keep its line-up the same for 2011, Domenicali’s reply was in the positive.

“It’s easy to criticise a driver when he’s not performing well, so we need to make sure the package for him is the best.”
