POLL: Is it time for Ferrari to axe Felipe Massa?

Should Ferrari show Felipe Massa the door? To submit your vote, simply CLICK HERE...

Felipe Massa is under pressure once again at Ferrari and following two scrappy outings in Australia and Malaysia, it remains to be seen just how much longer the Brazilian can hang on to his seat.

Indeed while Fernando Alonso took victory last weekend at Sepang, Massa could only manage 15th in the sister F2012.

Furthermore with Sergio Perez, who is a member of the Ferrari Young Driver Academy, finishing second for Sauber and almost taking the win, it merely heightened speculation that change could be on the cards - and sooner rather than later, even the Scuderia is, publicly at least, continuing to support the 2008 world championship runner-up.

Rumour has it, Massa has been given until Monaco in May to secure his place in the line-up, but what do you think Ferrari should do?

Should the Scuderia wield the axe and bring in new blood immediately?

I don't believe that Massa is fast enough to drive the Ferrari anymore. however, I really want to see Perez finish the year at Sauber, as they deserve it and it is also potentially the better car. And with Perez being a near certainty next year, any driver that replaces Massa for the remainder of the season will be temporary and unlikely to do any better. So let everyone finish the season then release Massa

The question should not be should ferrari axe him!. It should be... Was massa wrong to stay with a team that he knows does not fully support him?........ Even when he has been in a position to challenge his team mate he has not been allowed to... The nail was in the coffin the moment he got told... Alonso is faster than you. Can you confirm you understood that message?... That was a massive kick in the you know whats for a driver coming back from such a horrific accident... I seem to remember he was racing well up till that point in his comeback!. He should have quit there and then.... What driver in his right mind would be in F1 at a top team like ferrari and be happy at having no chance of being the groom EVER... unless his team mate had a Dnf? Ferrari is a joke of a team!!!
