Felipe Massa says it remains his goal to re-sign with Williams or a 'top team' for the 2017 Formula 1 season amidst growing uncertainty about his current seat.
An 11-time F1 race winner and runner-up to Lewis Hamilton in 2008, Massa is one of the longest-serving drivers currently racing in F1 and has enjoyed podium-winning success with the Williams team since joining from Ferrari at the start of the 2014 season.

However, with Williams having already made it clear it is considering other drivers in addition to Massa and Valtteri Bottas for 2017, the Brazilian's position in the team is considered most under threat.
For the 35 year-old, who made his F1 debut in 2002, he remains committed to proving he deserves to stay at Williams but insists he is calm about his prospects.

“Plan A is to stay in a top team, in a good team, like Williams or maybe like another team,” he said. “I think the time will give the right answer. I'm not really worried, trying to do my job in the best way every race and that's the only thing I'm looking for.
“I am confident, definitely,” he continued. “I think everyone knows what I am able to do, what I am able to achieve. Drive, experience inside the team, or other teams. So I'm really looking for things to go in the right direction – but not in a big worry. Just trying to do my job race by race and we'll see what's going to happen.”
Ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix, Massa is currently ninth in the F1 standings with a best finish of fifth place in Australia and Russia.
