Ferrari do not take up Massa contract option for 2013

Felipe Massa (BRA) Ferrari and Fernando Alonso (ESP) Ferrari. Formula One World Championship, Rd11, Hungarian Grand Prix, Preparations Day, Budapest, Hungary, Thursday 26 July 2012.Jul.27 (GMM) Ferrari has allowed a contract option on Felipe Massa’s services for the 2013 season to expire, according to Autosprint magazine.

Amid the Brazilian’s early struggles in 2012, it appeared a certainty that the Italian team was in the market for a new teammate for Fernando Alonso.

But Massa sped up as the F2012 also improved, even though it emerges that in the past days Ferrari let a one-sided contract option – that would have seen Massa definitely stay next season – expire.

It means that if the 31-year-old races a Ferrari for an eighth consecutive season in 2013, he will have agreed a brand new contract.

Massa told reporters in Hungary on Thursday that if he cannot stay at Ferrari, he could leave Formula One altogether.

“I want to stay in Formula One, but it has to be in a situation where I am in Formula One to race, not just to participate,” he said.

“If for whatever reason I don’t have the chance to stay in Ferrari, then I will try and find a direction where I can race.

“But, otherwise, small teams? I’m not interested.”

    Which team would require a driver like him? None…He’s highly paid but lowly rated.

    slow but so full of himself. they are also not interested. not even for espionage. clearly shows that the passion is long gone.

  • Rainman07

    For Massa to remain at Ferrari would take 3 podiums at minimum
    the remainder of this season.
