Massa in talks to be F1 television pundit

Felipe Massa has revealed that he should still be a familiar face in the F1 paddock next year.

Brazil’s UOL Esporte claims the Brazilian is set to sign up as a regular commentator or pundit, but not for the country’s own broadcaster TV Globo.

“I will not work with Globo because they are not coming to the races,” said the former Williams and Ferrari driver.

UOL said Massa is therefore negotiating with Sky Italia, whose current broadcasting team includes Jean Alesi and Jacques Villeneuve, and former GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi.

“If I do some work on television, I will be at the track, so I’m talking to other people outside of Brazil,” Massa admitted.

“My idea is that I would come to five or six races a year. And for now, this is not what is happening with Globo.”

Massa said he thinks former drivers do a good job working on television after their full-time careers end.

“I don’t know if they ask the best questions, but they often ask interesting questions. They know what they are talking about because it’s something they lived,” he said.
