Massa aiming for back-to-back wins

Felipe Massa is intent on becoming the first driver this season to win back-to-back races when the F1 circus stops in Barcelona next weekend.

The Brazilian and his Ferrari team tested at the Spanish circuit this past week, with impressive results. Not only did team-mate Kimi Raikkonen set the fastest lap time on the opening two days but Massa followed it up on Day Three with a P1 of his own.

The Scuderia's almost total domination during the four-day test - they lost out to Red Bull's David Coulthard on the final day - has come as a welcome boost to Massa, who believes he can follow up his Bahrain victory with one in Spain.

"I'm really motivated for sure. I am convinced that we can be competitive like we were (in Bahrain)," he told Autosport.

"Apart from the results themselves, which were not exactly ideal for so many reasons, I am really motivated. I was happy to win in Bahrain, we are working hard, keeping the momentum."

Ferrari also introduced a new aerodynamics package during the Spanish, which Massa believes will stand them in good stead for the upcoming grands prix.

"It has improved the car a lot, it will help a great deal for the next race, and the one after," he said of the new package. "We will of course continue to make it better, we have many solutions to make the car even more competitive."

However, he concedes McLaren and BMW could upset Ferrari's plans next weekend. "McLaren was the one which was more dangerous for us in the first two races," he said.

"My opinion is that it will stay like that, it will carry on like that but at the same time you need to pay attention to BMW, which showed a strong performance in the last races, especially (Nick) Heidfeld was more competitive."
