Massa 'quite optimistic' for 2014

Massa 'quite optimistic' for 2014

Felipe Massa insists he won't remain in Formula One just to make up the numbers, he wants a competitive ride or nothing.

The Brazilian is still seeking a new home after Ferrari announced that Kimi Raikkonen would be taking his place next season.

While it is a known fact that Massa in a talks with Lotus, the 11-time grand prix is also talking with other teams.

However, for now at least he has nothing to announce other than that there are "some good opportunities" out there.

"I'm quite optimistic that we are going to find a good direction and a good solution," he said.

"It will not change my mind, I want to have a car that will give me some good possibilities to fight, not a car that won't give me the opportunity to fight. I don't find that interesting.

"We are talking with a few teams but I don't think there is a right time to think about that. I think the right time is when you know where you're going.

"At the moment there are some good opportunities, I think, but it's better to wait and say at the right time."
