Felipe Massa: I know that things didn't go well last year but that is the past. I believe I can return to fight for the crown and I have nothing else in my mind.

Saying that the front tyres didn't suit his driving style sounds a bit lame. Adapting your style to get the best out of your equipment seems to be a pretty essential skill of a top line racer, especially one who has designs on an F1 WDC.

Only if the FIA gift you a load of points like they did in 2008.

Don't get me wrong, I like Massa, but he's not going to have a shout. Not consistent enough, and he's racing alongside Alonso. Ferrari wil be so centered around Nando, they won't even notice Massa's there.

Massa WILL fight for the championship... and we will discover alien life, and a cure for cancer, solve global warming, armed conflict will end, Britney Spears will win an Oscar, and monkeys will fly out of my butt.

Oh Please! I'm getting sick of all those second driver comments and people saying things like Ferrari don't even focus on Massa.

Stop it's getting lame, just like Felipe's tyre problems excuse.

Believe it or not, this is F1 and every team as a second driver just like Massa. He gets the same chances as the topgun, but the nr1 will be slightly favoured. It's like this at Ferrari, but I can say the same of McLaren and even RedBull.

Atleast Ferrari doesn't try too hard, other teams like Mclaren are even worse. What about Macca favouring Hamilton? They do that, without any doubt, they are even worse than Ferrari. Ferrari decide their number one on the track, just choose the best driver. McLaren will favour Hamilton even if he's 2 seconds slower than his team mate.

Tire problems? Does that explain his pace in Hockenheim when he was ahead of his team mate? As for fighting for the title. sorry Felipe but with Nando in the team it may not be a possibility.
