Felipe Massa: I want to stay in F1, but it has to be in a situation where I am in F1 to race, not just to participate.

I think I have read this scrip b4 with different
players, Eddie and Rubins and now Felipe.
At Ferrari one misstep by the designated #2, you
get sent to the Dog Pound, Adios baby!
Who is next?

@NK he was gaining pace again back in 2010 that race Stefano (team principal) came over the radio and said "Alonso is fasterrrr than you, do you underrrrstand the message?" is what imo destroyed his career. He was not expecting that from Ferrari and mentally he wasn't prepared for that message. But he has only himself to blame if Ferrari fired Kimi and payed a large some for doing that so Alonso could join that team what was he expecting?! ('comment', ':?')

Nico Hulkenberg's manager is in talks with Ferrari, and Heikki Kovalainen's management is in talks with Force India as well as Kobayashi. Paul di Resta looks set to stay where he is as Schumacher is expected to extend his stay at Mercedes.

What are you doing at the moment Massa? It certainly isn't the racing that I used to know and love. You've been "making up the numbers" for a while now fella. :(

I hate when noobs talk about Felipe's accident and how he was "never the same" after it. People don't seem to remember he was always an erratic driver, inconsistent and prone to spinning out and going off track in his earlier years at Sauber. Something he's never been able to sort out.

That race in Hockenhiem where he was asked to yield to the faster Alonso probably had a worse impact on his confidence than by getting hit with a spring. I'm glad he's doing better this year, I hope he gets a decent drive if they drop him.

In my opinion he's been making up the numbers for the last couple of seasons . His accident definately slowed him down , which is a shame because he was quick back then .

Massa is a better driver than most drivers on the grid. He needs a car that works though for his talent to shine through. Alonso is an exceptional driver ( the best on the grid by far) who can make a crap car look good. That is the only difference. Whoever goes to Ferrari will not fare better.
