Felipe Massa says his only goal from the final three races of the season is to beat Ferrari in the constructors' championship.

Williams currently sits in third place in the standings, 28 points clear of Ferrari with three rounds remaining including double points in Abu Dhabi. Massa believes Williams missed a big opportunity to extend that advantage in the Russian Grand Prix when an issue in qualifying saw him start 18th and fail to score in the race despite having the second fastest car, and as a result he says individual results are not the target over the closing races.

"The only thing I would like to achieve is to be in front of Ferrari," Massa said. "To finish with our team in front of Ferrari is our goal, that's our target. Unfortunately because of my problem [in Sochi] we lost so many points. We still managed to gain five points on Ferrari but we lost minimum ten points, as a conservative guess.

"It would have been really OK to finish third and fourth and we couldn't because of some reliability issues we had [in qualifying]. So I think that's the point; we need to concentrate on that and not having any reliability issues until the last race.

"The car is quick, the pace is quick and we know that without any problems we can be there in front of Ferrari and in front of many other teams as well."
