Massa hoping for new Williams deal

Date published: July 23 2015 - Editor

Felipe Massa is keen to extend his stay at Williams as he says he is "really enjoying" working with the Grove team.

Joining forces in 2014, both Williams and Massa had a resurgance with the Brazilian keen to continue the relationship beyond 2015.

Although Williams have dropped behind Ferrari in this year's pecking order, the team has still proven to be one of the strongest on the grid.

With two podium results, one for Massa and one for Valtteri Bottas, Williams are the only team aside from Mercedes and Ferrari to achieve a top-three showing.

"I hope so but nothing has changed at the moment," he said during Thursday's press conference.

"I don't see why I should not be there.

"I really enjoy working with the team. The team is really respecting me 100 per cent and I think I am enjoying the way I work with them."

As for claims that he's already signed a new deal, Massa said: "What people wrote a few days ago or maybe a week ago, I don't think this guy has the right information.

"I think he just put in the paper. I believe I will drive for Williams next year but maybe the chance this guy is correct is bigger."
