Good for Ferrari because they can not find someone who is so easy just to be slower than his teammate ... Bad for Mass, because I think he can be champion if he gets the necessary support and Ferrari will never make it!

no surprise, then espected, this is a boring game played by Ferrari as three seasons ago, after Ferrari's use of the table, they need a good "number two" driver Montezemolo also said .. Ferrari did not want two players in the top teams

I'm not a fan of Ferrari as Schumacher back. But this is crazy. Has anyone said that they want a third car once before? You might want to run third fiddle man - perhaps Karthikeyan - it! Nonsense!

Disasters. At the end ........

wow talk like a number two driver! Not long ago, he talked about titles, he now speaks of "purpose", he simply assumed that Alonso's number one driver and never even try to beat it. downward trend may continue with this mentality. There are people who really are fans of these breeds? (Except in my own country, of course)

Felipe Reborn! He has the talent to win races and compete for podiuns, if they get a good car.

I think it gives the Ferrari one more season to decide who will replace him, because it will happen next year, no doubt.

Good to see you! I hope Massa still a good recovery, now that he is not under pressure

Oh dear ... Ferrari can not be serious to win the constructors.

Bad decision table ... He will always be no. 2 driver for Ferrari, he will always be conquered Ferrari ... He had to look elsewhere if he ever wanted to be a champion .... I was hoping that Ferrari will evict him, so he would have a better chance next year: (

Good news! It should be all SLAPPP Mass-Haters. Ferrari seems to make more sense than they hate. Now he has a big role in the drivers and constructors championship this year. I hope that he can best support Alonso. Congratulations, MASSA!

Would not it be Mass '8. season? He signed in 2006, finally ...

Give Mass No.1 status, and he won the damn championship .. and without fussing too ..


Stefano Domenicali is confident Felipe Massa will repay the trust Ferrari has shown him after extending his contract.
Massa had an extremely poor start to the season, scoring just 11 points in the opening eight races of the year. However, a strong run of form has brought him 56 points over the last five races - including a second place in the Japanese Grand Prix - and Massa has even outscored his team-mate Fernando Alonso by 11 points in that time.
Off the back of that form, Massa has been handed anew one-year contract to remain as Alonso's team-mate. Domenicali said that Massa has displayed what he can do in a competitive car, and believes Massa will continue to deliver in 2013.
"We are pleased to have extended our relationship with Felipe for another year," Domenicali said. "He has been part of our family for over a decade and has shown, especially in the latter part of the season, to be competitive at the highest levels, as we expect every driver to be behind the wheel of a Ferrari.
"We have always supported Felipe, even in the most difficult moments of his career, and we are confident in his value, and that he will repay the trust that has been renewed."

give him a good car for 2013 and see him shine
Good choice Domenicalli....now get busy on those updates for the last 4 races...you're costing Alonso the WDC.
He will, Domenicali. But, would you? How would you repay the drivers' trust in Ferrari? Would you promise to deliver a promising car for 2013? That is a bigger questions for fans and sponsors.

Korean Grand Prix - Qualifying - Felipe Massa want to fight for podium.


Felipe Massa thinks Ferrari is closer to Red Bull at this weekend's Korean Grand Prix and is hoping he will be able to have a "straight fight" with the cars ahead of him in Sunday's race.
He qualified sixth on the grid, 0.6s off Mark Webber on pole, but reckons Ferrari's race pace will mean the car is more competitive on Sunday.
"I think the gap is smaller but they [Red Bull] are still at the front and have a very quick car which is quicker than our car in the qualifying," he said. "McLaren was also a bit quicker than us but I hope we can see a similar direction to the last race with our car getting a little bit quicker in the race and the possibilities get bigger to fight with these guys. Hopefully it could even be a straight fight. The qualifying was okay and I didn't do a perfect lap. Maybe with a perfect lap I would have been one or two positions higher, but I don't think it would have been much better than that."
It's only the sixth time he has been in the top ten this year and Massa his lack of one-lap pace had held him back this year.
"I had many races where I had a great pace but by starting further back I had more chance of contact with somebody. I think when you start in a better position it helps and I hope that it helps for tomorrow as well. I feel much better and more confident with the car and I'm driving it more automatically. In the race I've always had a good pace and I think that is really positive. I'm pushing hard to improve even more to get to the front."
Massa is starting one place ahead of Romain Grosjean who has come under intense media pressure after causing another first-lap accident in Japan. However, Massa is not concerned about what might happen at the start.
"He needs to worry, not me," he said. "He's been in a few problems at the start and he has suffered already a lot with that. He needs to be careful and understand how to do the starts. I hope he understands that and I will try to do the best with whatever driver I am beside. I hope he understood with all the problems, but he is a clever guy and a good driver and it's not a difficult thing to learn and understand."
Felipe Massa cree que Ferrari está más cerca de Red Bull en el Gran Premio de Corea este fin de semana y tiene la esperanza de que será capaz de tener una "lucha directa" con los coches de delante de él en la carrera del domingo.
Se clasificó sexto en la parrilla, 0,6 s apagado Mark Webber en la pole, pero calcula que el ritmo de Ferrari carrera significa que el coche es más competitivo el domingo.
"Creo que la diferencia es menor, pero ellos [Red Bull] aún se encuentran en la parte delantera y tiene un coche muy rápido, que es más rápida que el coche en la clasificación", dijo. "McLaren también fue un poco más rápido que nosotros, pero espero que podamos ver una dirección similar a la última carrera con el coche cada vez un poco más rápido en la carrera y las posibilidades se hacen más grandes a pelear con esos tipos. Esperemos que incluso podría ser un lucha directa. La calificación fue bien y yo no hice una vuelta perfecta. Tal vez con una vuelta perfecta que hubiera sido una o dos posiciones más alto, pero no creo que hubiera sido mucho mejor que eso. "
Es sólo la sexta vez que ha estado en el top ten de este año y Massa su falta de ritmo a una vuelta lo había retenido este año.
"He tenido muchas carreras donde tuve un buen ritmo, pero al comenzar más atrás que tenía más posibilidades de contacto con alguien. Creo que cuando empiezas en una mejor posición que ayuda y espero que ayude para mañana también. Me siento mucho mejor y más seguro con el coche y lo estoy manejando más de forma automática. En la carrera siempre he tenido un buen ritmo y creo que eso es muy positivo. Estoy trabajando duro para mejorar aún más para llegar a la parte delantera. "
Massa está comenzando un puesto por delante de Romain Grosjean, que ha sido objeto de una intensa presión de los medios después de causar otro accidente en la primera vuelta en Japón. Sin embargo, Massa no está preocupado por lo que pueda pasar en la salida.
"Él tiene que preocuparse, no yo", dijo. "Él ha estado en algunos problemas al principio y que ha sufrido ya mucho con eso. Él tiene que tener cuidado y entender cómo hacer las aperturas. Espero que entienda eso y voy a tratar de hacer lo mejor con cualquier conductor que Estoy al lado. Espero que comprendía a todos los problemas, pero él es un hombre inteligente y un buen piloto y que no es una cosa difícil de aprender y entender. "
