Massa 'feeling positive' about the F138

Massa 'feeling positive' about the F138

Felipe Massa believes Ferrari's F138 is a step in the "right direction" as he looks to return to winning ways.

It has been four seasons since Massa climbed to the top step of the podium with the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix marking his last race victory. That was also the last season that he fought for a World title.

Massa, though, is determined to put that right this year with the 31-year-old feeling "positive" about his prospects after unveiling Ferrari's new F138 at Maranello.

Speaking at Friday's launch, the Brazilian said: "It's always a good feeling - the first feeling - to see the car.

"I've had many presentations already in my career from Ferrari. I've some feelings that were not very positive in a few years, to see the car for the first time. Other years, it was very positive.

"I have to say that this is a very positive feeling. Maybe it's just my personal feeling but I think it was nice to see the car."

He added: "The car is much more prepared. You have some interesting details around the car that can work, that can be nice on the track.

"Let's wait and see how everything's going to be on the track but the feeling is really 100 per cent in the right direction."

Massa will drive the F138 for the first time at Jerez next week when pre-season testing gets underway on Tuesday.
