F1 » Herbert: Massa has to up his game

Johnny Herbert: I would imagine there will come a certain time where the pressure of the Italian Ferrari fans will get to a point where they [the Scuderia] will sadly probably have to make a call on it...

Massa isn't going any where, at least not until the season ends, for better or for worst. It will be the worst P/R for Ferrari if they fire Massa before the season ends especially if the car continues to be a lemon.

Say what you like, but Herbert has more right to his opinion than any of us.
He is a Grand Prix winner, he has raced successfully for many years.
Something which none of us can even claim to be.

Beyond this and maybe more relevant in his view of Massa, Herbert also suffered a career defining accident in 1988.
His crash during a F3000 race nearly lost him his foot and to this day his legs suffer pain because of it.
Before that, he was unquestionably the best British driver since maybe Jim Clark. He dominated everything up to his accident, and was never the same again.

Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't JH actually asked his opinion and gave it? That, as far as I can see, is NOT advising the red lot, but sadly stating what all non-biased fans already know, Filippe has lost that extra spark that makes a great driver. Pity.
