Massa wants to stay at Ferrari, not interested in small teams

Published

on

Ferrari’s Felipe Massa says that he won’t stay in F1 if he can’t find an aggressive drive. The Brazilian cannot get a competitive drive should he drop his seat at Ferrari.

2012 F1 opening races Massa’s future was qualm because some race he made a poor performance. Felipe Massa is now in 14th in drivers’ championship with 23 points from 10 races.

Other main paddock talks closed when Mark Webber extended his deal with Red Bull racing after British GP. Ferrari previously talks with other drivers, as well as Mark Webber.

“What I want is to stay in F1, but I want to stay in F1 with a possibility to race, not just to participate,” said Massa.

“I’m interested in racing. I think if for whatever reason I don’t have the chance to stay at Ferrari I will try to find a direction to race.

“If I don’t find a direction to race, because it’s maybe only small teams available, then I’m not interested.”

“Having a clean race,” he said when asked how he could help Alonso. I’m sure having a clean race would help a lot, and not just him, but myself and the team. That’s the only thing. In the last race I had a good pace.

“Unfortunately in Q2 I couldn’t do the lap straight away and then I couldn’t improve because it was raining a lot. But even after the incident the pace was very good during the whole race. A clean race is what it counts in the end.”

The Brazilian is ready to fight with racing for supporting role to Alonso now that he is out of contention.

“I have no chance in the championship. I’m completely out of the fight for the championship and Fernando in in front with a good margin.
