Massa: Greater chance of a new Ferrari deal now

So far this season, Felipe Massa’s form has been a hot topic in the media with many believing that the Brazilian could be ousted from his Ferrari seat at the end of the season. However Massa has admitted he stands a better chance of staying at Ferrari now that his form has improved.

He is quoted by Brazil’s O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper: “Until now there is no sign that I’m close or far away,” said the 31-year-old when asked about the likelihood of a new Ferrari deal for 2013. “There is a greater chance now but I don’t know what will happen.”

“Everything changes very fast in Formula One. The important thing is to do a good job and to get a good result at the end of the races. If that happens then it will all be easier,” he insisted.

Although there are signs Mark Webber will stay at Red Bull for another season, the Australian is still regarded as Massa’s most likely successor.

The 35-year-old smiled as he shrugged on Thursday: “For next year I’ve a pretty decent chance I’ll be racing in F1.”
