Massa: Results will determine my future

Massa: Results will determine my future

Felipe Massa knows the only way he will remain at Ferrari next season is if he produces the goods in the latter half of the season.

While team-mate Fernando Alonso lies third in the Drivers' Championship with 133 points on the back of two race wins, Massa has picked up 61 points with only one podium finish.

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, though, has assured the Brazilian that "he can count on our total confidence in him" and also revealed that the team are in no rush over their 2014 driver line-up.

However, Massa knows he needs to produce the goods if he wants to remain at the Scuderia next year.

"The results will decide whether I stay here or move teams," he said.

"The possibility to stay is there, but the most important thing is the results.

"I'm happy with the way I'm driving in terms of pace - in qualifying and race pace.

"We just need to finish the races in the normal way and get consistency. In doing that, the results will be there."

The 32-year-old faced similar problems during the 2012 season, which also led to speculation that he would lose his Ferrari seat for this campaign.

However, the team offered him a new one-year deal and he admits you are never quite sure how things will pan out.

"Until you sign the contract, you don't know," he added.
