That man who would replace him is Perez, the Mexican a spectacular second place in rain interrupted Malaysian GP concurrently Massa once more failed to score.

But Ferrari boss Domenicali still to protect Massa following complicated start to Formula one season and he says Ferrari need to find a way for him to get confident in his car.

‘We need to stay close to Felipe in this moment,” he told Autosport. “It’s a difficult moment and we need to find a way for him to get confident in his car.

“We saw, for example, one step that was in the right direction in qualifying because we saw there was an improvement compared to last weekend. Now we need to understand what happened today in terms of his race pace and in terms of his performance.

“In my view the problem is that this car is quite difficult, not easy. It can be very good and it can also be quite difficult. We showed this today that in certain conditions you have to have a certain driving style and you can be very, very good, and in other conditions you can destroy the tyres.

“The priority for me and what I need to make sure is that Felipe has around him the protection of the team that tries to work hard with him.
