According to the latest rumours, Felipe Massa may have decided a ‘Barrichello-clause’ in the pages of his new Ferrari deal. As the 29-year-old arrived in Turkey mid last week, the Italian team said Massa will keep racing a Ferrari in 2011 and 2012, contrasting to gossip that Mark Webber or Robert Kubica might swap him.

However so far in 2010, Massa has struggled to match the speed of his new Ferrari co-driver Fernando Alonso, with in Turkey, where he was out qualified before driving a messy race and crossing the line a lap down.

The most recent edition of the Swiss magazine Motorsport Aktuell reports rumours that one of the conditions of Massa’s contract renewal was that he agree to be the number two driver.

‘Barrichello clause’ is a reference to Michael Schumacher’s former Ferrari teammate Rubens Barrichello, who famously raced to support the championship charges of the team’s favored driver.

Felipe Massa is quoted as reacting to the rumours: “Rubbish”, while Alonso refused to comment.
