Shame on Ferrari for treating Massa as bad as they have - give up grid position and places in many races - that is no way to treat any driver.
He was nothing more than a tool to them and Alonso.
And Ferrari even takes credit for allowing him to stay with the team - that is only to help Alonso as Alonso have never wanted to have a competitive team mate - he had that once with Hamilton (and lost - by the way - to a rookie) and he fled as soon as he could.
I would not feel all that proud if I was Massa! He should go to a team that supports him in driving - not as a tool!

By that logic LH only became world champion because Glock stayed out on the wrong tyres?


If Glock had come in for Inter he would till be behind Lewis.

I hope Massa gets treated better next year these final few races he's been a different character back to his old self prior to his accident and it's been great to see.

In a couple of the races I've been wondering if Ferrari are backing the wrong man!?!

I hope he builds upon this new found confidence.

@The Nonny Mouse

Now thats a funny logic. How can Hamiltons overtaking of Glock have anything at all to do with Massa being told to let Alonso pass in several races and giving up grid position?? Ridiculous!! Sounds like a sour little mouse :-)

Massa has been treated more than fairly by Ferrari and they owe him nothing. He is a great guy and I'm glad his form has greatly improved, but he is not the fighter and team leader that a Schumi, Alonso, Hamilton, etc. are.

How did Ferrari treat him unfairly??? They took him from Sauber where he crashed a lot and gave him a ride in a top team when no other top teams were calling him. Nor have any other top teams been calling for his services since. Ferrari is by far his best option, if he leaves there it will not be to a top team.

On top of that they have made him one of the highest paid drivers in F1. At one point he was earning more than WDC's like Hamilton and Button. Last year he was the third highest paid behind Alonso and Lewis all while not performing so well for a good part of the season.

Like Barrichello, without Ferrari his career in F1 would have been much shorter, earning much less money and with few, if any, wins. Ferrari have always been strong supporters of Felipe and
