Massa's fate known tomorrow?
START OF THE PROBLEM? Ferrari's Felipe Massa immediately after his helmet was hit at race speed by a kilo of metal.
YEONGAM, South Korea - Ferrari F1 driver Felipe Massa, after a recent string of improved results, is about to learn whether he will continue driving for Ferrari beyond the end of the 2012 season.
A day after the Brazilian's fourth-place finish in the 2012 Korean F1 GP Ferrari's president Luca di Montezemolo told italian state radio that he and Massa would have a lengthy conversation on Tuesday (Oct 16, 2012) "and then we'll make a decision".
Massa also finished fourth in the Italian GP in September then took second in the Japanese GP the weekend before the Korean event - his first podium result in nearly two years.
Massa hasn't won a race since he was hit in the face (helmet) by a piece of flying metal during the Hungarian GP in 2009. His contract will expire at the end of 2012.
He is ninth in the 2012 Drivers' standings.
