Stefano Domenicali has recalled the last time Felipe Massa appeared to be out of form - and how the Brazilian bounced back to threaten for the world title.

It is all just sad and shameful. Massa is merely an assistant of Alonso. If he would have any self respect, he would give up his position.
Massa is a nice guy, but embarrasingly slow unfortunately after his accident and not too smart as well, he keeps getting in trouble during the race, unlike Alonso. But I'll say, keep him in the car as I think Ferrari is an unethical team anyway with their 1/4 Marlboro package logo, so don't mind to see them loose.

massa. (shame on you for using his name and then denegrating him!) di montezemelo is standing by massa, but then again, i suppose that you are the motorsports head at ferrari, and will overrule him.
massa is doing a lot of testing for mods to the car, and he is not embarrassingly slow. he has outqualied alonso a couple of times. getting into trouble in a race has not been his fault, as you are well aware. and as for the "marlboro" supposed logo. ??????? their logo has been approved by fia as it does not breach the advertising ban, so i cannot see why you consider ferrari , unethical.
in fact, they are being very loyal to one of their drivers who seems to be the butt of comments by a lot of keyboard warriors.
simple solution for you. cancel your order for the new f12!

Googol, first of all thanks for the complement, secondly, you are surprised at my line of thinking/reasoning but I am not at yours as I can fully see your point of view/reasoning , a view which although it is 100% true doesn't change anything of what I said simply as no other team can or will ever have a more prestigious seat, since the 1950 the FERRARI team was the one where ALL DRIVERS wanted at some point in their career to race, most of the greatest drivers, Ascari, Fangio, Phil Hill, Surtess, Lauda, Scheckter, Villeneuve, Prost and the most successful of them all (Schumacher) all drove for FERRARI this because FERRARI was/is and will always be the formula one team with the greatest pedigree. And a note here, this is not only my opinion but it's what's written in the history books.

sunny. you are 100% correct. interestingly, the driver who had the best car at the end of the season, and who many claim to be the "best in the world", was seen going into the ferrari motorhome last year, but was shown the door.
re concorde agreement.. ferrari $50m, mclaren 35m, redbull 35m. so it seems that ferrari is still seen as the draw of f1!

The question is who will take Massa's spot if he leaves. Ferrari will not let anyone challenge FA for #1. Perhaps JA would be nice to be brought in due to experience, or maybe they will nick SP putting "strain" on Sauber's engine deal.
