Did economy save Massa's ride?

2012-02-21 09:49

FINANCIAL CALL: The current global economic situation may be the reason Felipe Massa has retained his seat at Ferrari despite poor performances in 2010 and 2011..

Felipe Massa may have kept his seat at Ferrari for economic reasons. That'sthe view of Keke Rosberg, 1982 World champion and father of Mercedes F1 driver Nico.

Massa had a contract for 2012 but at the end of 2009, when Kimi Raikkonen was replaced by Fernando Alonso, Ferrari showed it was not afraid to pay handsomely to end a bad deal.

So, is Rosberg also surprised that Massa is still Alonso's team mate?


Rosberg said: "I think that's been influenced by the fact that they burned quite a lot of money with Kimi.

"They could have again paid off the guy with the contract and taken someone else but at some point you have to be economically mindful - you can't always go for the most expensive option."

Mika Salo, a former Ferrari driver, told MTV3 last week he was "surprised" that Brazilian Massa kept his seat for 2012 after two poor seasons.
