Massa: Pace not a concern

Massa: Pace not a concern

Felipe Massa says he knows he has the pace to end a recent run of poor results and help secure his future at Ferrari.

While the Brazilian's season started promisingly, the last two months have been filled with disappointment, and speculation over his future at Maranello has been rife.

Perhaps encouraged by Ferrari's continued show of faith in him, Massa appeared relaxed about the task ahead while speaking with reporters during the recent young driver test at Silverstone.

"I know what I have to do. I'm just concentrating on good results," he said.

"The pace is there so I'm not worried because I showed in most of the races to be honest [on] the pace. Things have happened not to finish the race and we just need to concentrate and try to keep the pace and just finish the race. I know if nothing strange happens I will finish in a good position."

Massa knows he needs to deliver stronger results and finish races on a more consistent basis, though he also feels he's been the victim of a run of bad luck.

"I need to improve a little bit my consistency - just finish the race, that's the most important thing," he added.

"Not just finish the race but also I was not very lucky, like here (Silverstone) in the race with the tyres, in Bahrain with the tyres. Also myself, just trying to finish the race in a consistent way."
