Without a doubt, Felipe will be able to adapt his style of driving...
I seem to remember he could adapt his style of driving to stop hitting raised kerbs (when everyone else could) and broke his suspension twice.
Mentally, he obviously lost it last year too... acting like a petulant child.

To all the naysayers we have to split company here. I'll
climb the fence and ride with Massa. Last season was
real bad news, that will change, Having to bump wheels
with Hamilton was at best really distracting.
I think the driver who has to be concerned with Massa is
Alonzo. I really think that Massa will upset the Dog pound
this season..

I think F1 is about 3 things: talent, money and who you know.

His talent doesn't show as much anymore, but massa was Bernie's favorite driver before Vettel, and don't forget his his agent is the son of the FIA boss, who used to be team principal at Ferrari.

Given that the Brazilian government pays a handsome fee to have their event cap the F1 season, there could be a speculation in there that they would prefer to have a brazilian in a prominent position. We all know how close the FIA and Ferrari are.

So in all Felipe has some powerful friends. But in fairness he has been given more than enough time to re-ignite the flame.

Massa was never anything other than a second rate driver who was lucky enough to have a great car undrneath him at times! Time's up Felipe you've been figured out and its time to let someone more worthy take your drive. I personally reckon Kubica will get a shot if he eventually recovers.

I am NOT a Massa supporter, and in fact, I was laughing my butt off in 2008 when Hamilton stole the WDC from him. But when I look back now, that was just bad form. He was the best driver in 2008 and fully deserved the title.

True, his form the last few seasons has been less than inmpressive, but it's a silly person who writes Massa off so easily. I think he fully deserves everyones respect and another chance this year. Ferrari obviously agree.

Watch this space...

P.S. GO JENSON! haha

I am Tifosi through and through and I want a Prancing Horse to win no matter who may be driving it. Having said that thanks to Rubens Spring we have this idiot making up the numbers. I want to see a hungry, go-for-it driver in the second seat at Ferrari. Paul DiResta for instance.
