“Massa has to do something great, and something special, after a non-positive season,” Montezemolo said. “We are offering him the best conditions to do a great job.”
The Brazilian Massa has been under pressure following a unsatisfactory season in 2011 and his deal expiring at the end of the season Massa acknowledge that it is a vital season for him, but insists he is in a positive frame of mind to improve.
“It is going to be an important year for me and whole team, 2012, this is going to be the victory year,” Massa said.
“We want to fight to get the championship back. I want to be believe in my skills and our car and this is the right thing to do. We want to see Ferrari winning as often as possible; here I feel a strength, I’m focused on winning. There’s plenty of positive things in my head and I want to start in the right way and get to the end of the championship in a better way.”
