Ferrari extends Massa’s contract through to 2013
A brief statement from Ferrari said it had renewed the Brazilian’s deal “to the end of the 2013 race season.”
“Ferrari is my sporting family and I’ve always raced in F1 with motors built in Maranello,” said Massa, who previously competed with the Sauber team supplied by Ferrari. “I can’t see myself at the wheel of a car powered by anyone else.”
“He has shown himself to be competitive again and at his best recently, which is what we expect from every Ferrari driver,” team principal Stefano Domenicali said. “We’ve always supported Felipe, even in the toughest times of his career. We’re sure of his worth and that he’ll know how to repay the confidence we’ve renewed in him.”
Massa’s previous deal _ a two-year agreement _ was set to expire at the end of this season.
Ferrari president Luca Di Montezemolo addressed the Vettel situation on Monday.
“I don’t want to have two roosters in the same henhouse,” Montezemolo said. “(I prefer) two drivers who race for Ferrari and not for themselves. I don’t want problems and rivalries, which we didn’t have between (Michael) Schumacher and (Eddie) Irvine, between Schumacher and (Rubens) Barrichello, between Alonso and Massa or Massa and Schumi or Massa and (Kimi) Raikkonen.”
