The fun for Felipe appears to be winning, he hasnt had a car good enough to put him in that position since the end of 2008, while his team mate has found a way to win seven times in the same car, even Kimi won in the F60 once Ferrari had there 'racing' attention taken away from Felipe. He's getting crushed by Alonso, but could look at Jenson Buttons revival against Lewis Hamilton last year, or Mark Webber and his early season results/demenure in comparison to Vettel, Ferrari though may have the biggest gulf between its drivers compared to any team on the grid

How can he relax when he's not producing results in the greatest team ever, being constantly beaten by one of the greatest drivers of the modern era, with the tifosi giving him a hiding whilst having the word s'Fernando is faster than you' ringing in his ears. Not easy.

If this years Ferrari was the fastest car out there Massa would still be miles behind Alonso. Last years car was not bad and Alonso almost got 3rd in the Championship, Massa way down. If he was a rookie he would not be driving this year. Do Ferrari want to loose the Constructors Title? The answer must be yes as they are throwing away points with Massa having driving lessons from the pit wall.

sure Barrichello ask Lulu how relaxed 2007 was. No diver will have peace having Alonso as a team mate period. Because he will try to destroy you make you look bad but before that he will make sure he's got number 1 status in the team. Massa has to move on he still can beat any driver as he did against Hamilton, Raikkonen, Villeneuve and many others. He must leave Ferrari before all his glories fad away.

peter. massa out qualified alonso several times last year. but now tell me, how many times was massa prevented from finishing a race, due to being torpedoed by another particular car? AND, for the last few races, massa was being used to TEST items such as floppy wing, in an effort to boost alonsos position in the wdc.

This is the lite ( Crash ) version of what Rubins has said to
Massa.... "Barzila Motorecs F1"
Rubins knows the score, how the game is played at Ferrari. Massa is in the exact same position as Rubins found
himself playing second fiddle to Micheal. Actually I think it
help make Schumy quite successful. I'm sure Mass knows
Ferrari's intentions. Methinks its time to move on. Saulber
is not the best team. But Rubins baby things can be a lot
worse.. Say Adios, and move on.

Badman, Jose

How astute you are. Your post most of the time seem to
go south ..Massa like Rubins is the unofficial test driver.
Alonzo, 'steady performer' Mr. six 0.6 gets the benefits.
Nothing new about this Ferrari Game.
Sunny Wednesday morning, cool breeze, how sweet it is..

jose. wow! you have gone from calling me 'stupid', to now being 'astute'. whats wrong? did you gybe by accident and get clouted on the head?
but if you read my older posts, i have always pointed out the testing role of massa in the last few races of 2011. yes, he is getting the thin end of the stick, but this is no reason why he should get such vitriol on this site. maybe he needs to stand up for himself a bit more?
whos on the dog watch tonight?

My 2 cent's worth. Massa will never be the driver again prior to his accident. It's quite simple, and I don't like being the ruthless one, however someone has to. OK maybe I do.
Massa has lost his NERVE.
He's lost the poofteenth needed to be a great driver. Well maybe a couple of them. It's like a footy player. You're at the top of your game, then bam, massive injury. It's easy to troll around, do the basics etc because you're used to that. However, to be at the upper echelon, no way. If I was Ferrari, Massa would be gratuited a Sauber drive, and I would have Perez in the Fezza.
