Ferrari target a place on the podium – Massa

Sept.10 – The Ferrari driver Felipe Massa says that qualifying result he was already expected to attain ahead of the one hour session, The Brazilian lost time on his final timed run in qualifying, but shares team-mate Fernando Alonso’s goal of claiming a place on the podium. Tomorrow he will start from sixth on the grid.

“All things considered, it was a good qualifying, though definitely not an easy one, because we knew there were some very quick cars out there,” Massa explained. “The result is pretty much in line with our expectations going into the session. We worked well, trying to fine tune the car in one session after the next. In Q3, on my final run, I had got a good tow behind Michael, but then, I pushed a bit too much and lost precious time at the second chicane and the Lesmo corner.

“Maybe I could have been one or two places further up, but definitely nothing more than that. Tomorrow, I expect the race will be very close and difficult and rear tyre degradation will be one of the key factors. As usual, strategy will be decisive and I hope I can do well. This is a very important event for Ferrari and we are keen to give our fans something to cheer about. The target? A place on the podium, but I know it will be very difficult.”
