Massa certain of Ferrari upturn

Massa certain of Ferrari upturn

Felipe Massa hopes that a return to the traditional high-speed circuits on the Formula One circuit will provide a boost for both Ferrari and himself.

The Brazilian has suffered crashes in Monaco and Montreal, but was hopeful that Silverstone and the Nurburgring will help the Maranello team close the gap on Red Bull in the Constructor's Championship.

"I think Silverstone can be a bit better for us," explained Massa.

"The car was very strong in Barcelona and in China. Montreal was a completely different track compared to where next we are going - to Silverstone and Nurburgring, where you have a lot of lateral corners.

"There are a lot of medium and high-speed corners, so we will see. I think will be better on normal tracks."

He also rejected suggestions that Ferrari were falling behind Red Bull in the season-long development war.

Despite Ferrari falling 56 points behind Red Bull, Massa is certain that the recent results were merely "blips" in their progress.

"I'm not very happy for what's happened to me recently - in Bahrain for the tyre, Monaco for the two crashes and in Canada with qualifying," he added.

"So, definitely I want to get to the next race with a lot of luck - good luck! - and show our potential every time in qualifying and in the race.

"I know we have the pace and that is important. We have to go and do it."
