Again, how many drivers could actually do a better job? What we are seeing is the difference between Massa in a good Ferrari (up to and inc 2008) and Massa in a not so good Ferrari (regular top six finishes in the 'third' best car, but not a lot else). Remember Fisichella went from taking pole position and finishing runner up in Spa, to sinking without a trace.

as much as I dislike ferrari I feel sorry for massa its obvious hes not the same driver as he was pre accident, its not something he can fix either you see it quite often when a driver has a massive off and gets hurt the ones that come back as good or better than before are rare if not unique. (schumacher and Mika Hakkinen are the only two who have been hurt recently and come back and won a championship (although buttons off at monaco was a big off g-wise it wasnt a bone breaker like schumacher leg or a life threatening off like mika)

the same goes for Kubica after his survival from the accident and then falling and breaking a bone on the ice... he wont be the same if he ever gets back behind an f1 wheel

I think it's too early to call still, and there are many factors to consider. First of all, no he wasn't brilliant last year but then again neither was Hamilton. However I do think that this might be his last chance at Ferrari. He says there's something wrong with the car, they make a new one for him. If he's no better in this one then I think he will be in serious trouble. This year we have a pretty unique situation with two solid drivers sidelined, i.e. Sutil and Alguersuari. It would seem like either one of them could step in and do Massa's job better. One thing speaking for Massa lasting the full season though is the Badoer/Fisichella fiasco.
