Massa admits 2016 could be his last season for Williams

Felipe Massa has admitted that 2016 could be his last season driving for Williams.

Speculation in Monaco is linking not only the Red Bull Racing refugee Daniil Kvyat with Massa’s seat for 2017, but also McLaren-Honda’s Jenson Button.

Massa, 35 years old and with 11 Ferrari race wins under his belt, admitted the time to start looking around at his options for 2017 is now approaching.

“From the Monaco race, you start talking about things and teams and drivers start working on what the future holds,” the Brazilian told UOL Esporte.

“I’m already beginning to understand what can happen, but I don’t know yet,” Massa added.

He said staying at Williams for a fourth consecutive season next year cannot be ruled out.

“The intention is to try to get into a good position for a few more years,” said Massa. “I think that nothing is impossible.

“When your contract is ending, you have to see what is the right way to go. I have the chance to continue in Williams, yes, but also to negotiate with other teams,” he revealed.

“We have to try to understand what is happening around us in the market,” added Massa, who is managed by FIA president Jean Todt’s son, Nicolas.
