Felipe Massa: “I know how to be competitive…”

Felipe Massa says he’s been a lot more relaxed since it was confirmed that he would be leaving Ferrari at the end of the season.

Massa has outqualified Fernando Alonso five times in the past six races, although to be fair the Spaniard chose the prime tyre in India.

“I feel very relaxed, very relaxed to be honest,” he said when asked by this writer how it had affected his approach. “And I think that’s the best for me as well. You know, I can get inside the car to enjoy myself, to take the best out of the car, but enjoying and relaxing.”

Despite his good recent form relative to Alonso Massa says that 2013 hasn’t been a great season.

“For sure it’s not the best season for me, I can do much better than what I did this year, the last years. I think what is important to know is that I have the speed. I have the speed, I know how to win, I know how to be competitive, and we just need to try to put things together, and that’s what I’m trying. This season we had some very good races, but we had some very difficult races. Anyway, I’m looking pretty optimistic for the last races.”

  1. I hope Massa is going to Williams.

    So does every other F1 driver aspirant (know how to be competitive, that is). As with so many other talented drivers Felipe may be suffering from over exposure and under performance. Pay drivers are always welcome in this market and experienced drivers need not apply unless accompanied by a large deposit check.

    Not happy about the current state of affairs, merely pointing out what I believe is obvious.
