Felipe Massa has revealed that Touring Cars could 'definitely' be an 'option' for him once he retires from F1.

Massa made the statement following his surprise participation at the weekend in free practice for the fourth round of this season's Trofeo Linea, a series which runs as part of the Racing Festival, now one of the most important events on the Brazilian motor racing scene.

Speaking to the Scuderia's official website, the Brazilian said he had enjoyed getting on track at Interlagos - and he was right on the pace too, setting the second quickest in the morning session and sixth in the afternoon.

"I had a lot of fun today," commented the Ferrari man. "It's been ten years since I last drove a Touring car, dating back to 2001 when I raced an Alfa Romeo 155, so I thought I might struggle a bit, so sixth best time in the second session is not that bad.

"I could have been quicker but I hit the chicane when I went out on new tyres, which damaged the front suspension, so the steering felt very heavy.

"I have to say the Trofeo Linea is very interesting to drive: it's stable and the sequential change works very well.

"This sort of racing could definitely be an option when the day comes that I decide to leave F1."
