Ex- Ferrari boss Jean Todt says that Felipe Massa to come-back strongly in 2012, following a hard last season. The Brazilian too struggled in 2011 season and he was finished sixth on the constructors’ championship with 118 points, half the points of team-mate Fernando Alonso.
“Felipe was unable to adapt completely to the new Pirelli tyres,” he told Corriere della Sera. “I think he’s still a good driver who will show that again. Alonso is the point of reference not just for him (Massa) but for everyone — and Felipe was three tenths away from him, not three seconds,” he added.
“Stefano’s role is the eye of the storm,” Todt added. “I was also constantly the subject of criticism and I’m proud that in the end I made the decision about how I should retire after all the risks that I would be fired. It was claimed that they did not have a competitive car but I don’t agree. The Ferrari was not as good as the Red Bull but in any case it was still a good car.”
