Though speculation about team-mate Valtteri Bottas' future movements occupy the headlines, Felipe Massa says he has no desire to look beyond his current seat with Williams Martini Racing going forward.

After eight seasons with Ferrari, Massa enjoyed a revival of fortunes on his move to Williams last year with three podiums en route to seventh in the standings, while this year's rostrum finish in Austria has put him in the hunt for fourth overall after nine races.

As one of the most experienced drivers on the F1 grid having made his debut back in 2002, Massa positive form means he is not concerned about his chances of staying put next season, insisting he is keen to remain with Williams.

"I don't see the point not to stay here," he said. "I really like to work with this team and the team respects me a lot. I feel relaxed, we've had some good results, so I don't see why things should change. We have an option for next year, but I don't see why we would not take the option to carry on."

Though staying with Williams remains in his immediate plans, Massa admits he has considered his future beyond F1, saying series' as the World Endurance Championship or even Formula E could keep him involved in motorsport.

"I have so many things to think about for the moment, maybe after I will have some options in Formula E or WEC, which I think is a very nice championship and has the best car after F1, so maybe I am more interested to do that first. When I decide to stop I will have more time to think about it."
