Massa has been dogged with replacement rumours all season; names in the frame have included Mark Webber, Jenson Button, and Sergio Perez. But following a strong showing from the Paulista in both qualifying and the race it was thought that he might have secured his Ferrari future. Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said this week that the Brazilian driver had to perform more consistently before the team would consider him as a strong prospect for the future. “We never take a decision before the second half of the season,” de Montezemolo told Reuters. “I'm sure that, because we are improving our car, the car will be less difficult to drive. “And I expect from Felipe better performances as I have already seen in Monte Carlo, because in Monte Carlo he was among the five quickest drivers on the track and in the qualifiers. So I hope he will continue like this. At the moment we are not taking any decision yet for the future, because it is too early.” The Monaco Grand Prix saw Massa make it into Q3 for the first time this season. He then capped off his strong Saturday with a P6 finish on Sunday, increasing his points haul from a paltry two to ten. Following his impressive performance chasing down Fernando Alonso at the Malaysian Grand Prix, Sauber driver Sergio Perez, a member of Ferrari’s Young Driver Academy, was spoken of as a probable replacement for Massa in 2013. De Montezemolo dismissed the rumours. “Perez is a good driver but to drive a Ferrari you need more experience,” the Ferrari president said. “I think he is one of the potential best young drivers for the future but before putting a young driver in a Ferrari I need more experience and more results.” NO GUARANTEES FOR MASSA, PEREZ 5 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> NEWS
