Massa eyes fight for top places

Massa eyes fight for top places

Felipe Massa is heading to the Spanish Grand Prix in confident mood despite his woes in Bahrain last time out.

Although he qualified fourth on the grid at the Sakhir track, the Ferrari driver suffered two punctures and finished outside the points in 15th place. It was a bit of a setback for the veteran as he picked up 30 points with a best finish of P4 in the opening three races of the campaign.

Massa, though, is upbeat that his Bahrain Grand Prix struggles were a one-off and he will return to form at Barcelona next weekend.

"The Circuit de Catalunya is the track that we know best thanks to all the tests that we do there at the start of the year: it's a complex, technical track where it's important to have good aerodynamic downforce," said the Brazilian.

"My best memory from Barcelona came in 2007 when I won the race: it was a great victory in front of a fantastic crowd that saw me fight with many opponents - including Fernando, who was then at McLaren.

"Obviously I'm not happy with my last race in Bahrain and so I hope to be able to get back to fighting for the top places this weekend."
