F1 POLL: Can Massa be faster than Alonso in 2012?

Vote in our latest F1 poll and give us your thoughts on if you think Felipe Massa can get the better of his Ferrari team-mate Fernando Alonso this year...

So, Felipe Massa is 'convinced' he can be even faster than his Ferrari team-mate, Fernando Alonso this coming season.

Speaking during Ferrari's annual Wrooom event on the slopes of Madonna di Campiglio in the Italian Dolomites, he told reporters: “I am sure that I can fight against Fernando not just to have the same time, but to make a better time than him - so to be even faster than him.”

What do you think?

Has he lost it, or can the likeable Brazilian really mount a proper championship bid like he did in 2008, when he finished runner-up to Lewis Hamilton - just one point adrift.

Prior to his accident, Massa was on form and can be fast yet again. In some respects he is similar to Hamilton, though I would not rate him as high as Lewis. However, I think both have trouble managing their tires, and their driving styles must change if either wishes to compete with their much smoother, and more cerebral, teammates. Can Massa beat Alonso? No, but with a renewed approach and a focus on tire management, he might push him a little bit.
