Massa optimistic about Ferrari future

Massa optimistic about Ferrari future

Felipe Massa believes he has a "good chance" to remain at Ferrari beyond the 2013 season.

The Brazilian signed a new one-year contract with the team until the end of this season and, although he has done reasonably well this year compared to last season, he still finds himself well behind team-mate Fernando Alonso in the standings.

Ferrari have remained pretty tight-lighted about their plans for next year, but the Brazilian is upbeat about his chances of partnering Alonso once again.

When asked by Autosport about his future, Massa replied: "I am confident I will be here [in Formula 1].

"I think I have a good chance to stay at Ferrari, so we wait and see. I think I will just concentrate on the races, because the result is what counts for me.

"I am just looking forward to having good races and I am optimistic that I will stay in Formula 1 and a good chance to stay here [at Ferrari]."

There is already one vacant seat on the grid next season following Mark Webber's announcement that he will leave Red Bull at the end of the year.

Although he is happy at Ferrari, Massa says it would be silly not to consider a move to the Milton Keynes squad.

"I think when you have a team that is winning Championships and is winning the last three years, I think it is always an opportunity," he explained.

"Everybody wants to drive in a quick car; but as I said, I am happy where I am and there is a good chance to stay here.

"But for sure we need to be open in case there is not a possibility to stay here. We need to be open for everywhere."
