Felipe Massa has taken a pop at McLaren duo, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton noting that what happened between the two in Hungary would never happen at Ferrari, as he and Kimi Raikkonen 'behave like professionals'.

The Alonso-Hamilton partnership reached a new low in qualifying at the Hungaroring earlier this month, something that ultimately resulted in Fernando losing his pole and being bumped back five spots on the grid.

McLaren also lost, provisionally, all constructors' points from that event, pending the result of their appeal.

Speaking to marca.com, the Brazilian added that he feels lucky to have a good working relationship with Kimi.

"After seeing what it is happening in McLaren I value a lot the relationship that I have with Kimi," Felipe confirmed. "We are not friends but we behave like professional drivers who look to get the best from their cars.

"The truth is that I feel like a lucky person to be able to work in an environment in which there are no problems with my team-mate."

As for the rest of the season, despite an awful grand prix in Hungary, one he himself branded his 'worst race of his career', he remains convinced that the title is still very much a possibility, even if he is 21 points behind the current leader, Hamilton.

"I believe that I can still be champion this year," he continued. "There are six races left and the circuits coming up will be better for our car.

"Until now McLaren-Mercedes have demonstrated the superior reliability but we are working very hard at the moment. I know the mechanics will do all they can during the break to improve things," he summed-up.
