The chances of Felipe Massa having his contract at Ferrari extended for another year took a giant leap forward after the Brazilian driver clinched second place at Suzuka.

This is good for both Ferrari and Massa. They may as well sign him for mulitiple years as Vettel will not be coming to Ferrari. Ferrari is NOT Vettel material. The FIA specifically changed the rules to stop the Bulls and can NOT. Red Bull is by far the best team on the grid.

dont you realize that is precisely why SV might not going to Ferrari. SV is not material for Ferrari, of course
Ferrari needs drivers, and you say it very clear. It is RED BULL not SV
SV would not be ANYBODY without red bull

Senseless, Jose.
It takes both a good car and a great driver to earn world drivers Championships. Seb has done it twice, and is on his way for a third title.
Not only that. Remember what he was driving when he got his first pole and won his first race? Just In case you don't: Seb wad driving a Toro Rosso in Monza.

Reminiscent of 2009, when Ferrari's chosen one is out of the way for whatever reason, the guy in the other car does quite well. Well done to Felipe, doing a job that I think very few drivers on the grid fancy.

I noticed when Domenicali was asked after the race if Massas' 2nd place would keep Massa in Ferrari in 2013 he backed out of giving an answer and showed negative body language and scooted off promptly.Massa is history at Ferrari , they have decided to give him the push already . How about Kobi San as a replacement ? he would be good

It takes a great driver and a good car (Alonso) or a great car and a good driver (Vettel) to win.

Unfortunate for Ferrari that Fernando was eliminated, Massa's finish is an indication of what might have been. Great result for Kobayashi and very deserving. Over the last 5 races, it will be interesting to see who prevails ... Alonso or Newey.

BTW ... Vettel did not win Monza in a Toro Rosso all those years ago. The car was actually a Red Bull modified for a Ferrari engine, customer cars being legal then. He qualified on the pole amd even his unheralded team-mate Bourdais was on the second row. So much for the myth.

I used to like Massa and his engineer, thought they were funny together, but they worked and Massa put in good performances.. But ever since the "Alonso is faster than you farce", I lost complete respect for them both and Ferrari's image sunk even further than I could imagine.

His performances have largely been sub-par, in a car capable of much, much, more. Alonso is good, but Massa has made him look like a God of racing.. Which I don't buy frankly.
