Felipe Massa was content with his start to the British Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone, the Brazilian pleased to merely spend the day putting miles on the F2007 than going for stunning laps.

With Raikkonen's pace showing Ferrari could be about to repeat their dominance of the French Grand Prix this weekend, Massa proved third fastest in the morning before moving up a place to second in the afternoon.

Still, Massa claims he spent the day concentrating on longer runs and tyre developments for the race ahead, with his quick times merely proving a bonus. He is now hopeful the day will be an indicator for the remainder of the weekend.

"I am very satisfied with the work done in these two free practice sessions. The car worked well in a reasonably similar way to what we had seen in the test here two weeks ago and I can only be happy with that.

"We worked on long runs and the performance was very consistent. I did not manage to set a fast time on the first lap on soft tyres because first of all, there was a bit of rain halfway round the track and then I made a small mistake. I hope we can come out ahead of our main rivals."
