Massa 'calm' about his future

Massa 'calm' about his future

Felipe Massa is not worried about losing his place at Ferrari at the end of this season as he believes there's no one out there who could do better.

Massa's seat at Ferrari was under threat last season when the Brazilian, who had not been on the podium since the 2010 Korean GP, failed to score in the first three races.

It was a slow trickle in the first half of the season, prompting speculation that he could even be replaced mid-season. Ferrari, though, kept faith and Massa had a much better second half, even netting two podium finishes.

The Scuderia re-signed the 32-year-old for an eighth season, which has gone much better than previous years. In seven grands prix he has amassed 49 points and one podium finish.

Happy with how he is performing, Massa believes he could be in for a ninth season with the Italian outfit in 2014.

"I am calm, I think it's important to have a good pace," he told Brazil's TotalRace. "I'm feeling good in the car and have a good pace.

"I'm very upset about what happened in Bahrain, with the tyres and the hits I've had. That hurt my score, but I'm happy with the car I'm driving and that's what counts most."

The 11-time grand prix winner added: "In my opinion, if you had a driver that was much better to get into my place, okay. But I think not."
