Massa remains hopeful

Felipe Massa is confident he has the 'possibility' of renewing his Ferrari contract for a further season or two.

The under-fire Brazilian has bagged just 35 points this season compared to his team-mate Fernando Alonso's 164.

As such Massa has proven to be almost no help in Ferrari's quest for the title double, which team boss Stefano Domenicali has stressed he needs to contribute to if he wants to re-sign.

Massa, an 11-time grand prix winner, remains hopeful that he can do just that.

"For sure I expect to be in a different position in the Championship [to the one] like I am," said the 31-year-old.

"But I just concentrate on my job which is driving the car, driving the quickest speed I can.

"I am frustrated with my qualifying, not with my races, and I'm sure improving a bit my qualifying I can be very strong in the race and change completely the results.

"As I said, I didn't sign anything for next year yet but I think we have the possibilities to sign [with Ferrari] and let's wait and see.

"I don't know when but we just need to concentrate on the result of the race. I think that's the main important thing for my future as well."
