he will win one, altho that wont make him a driver that belongs at ferrari, hes a good driver but not a real winner like schumi/alonso/raiko or hamilton were/are, but good enough as a second driver who knows his place and dont has to push in 1v1 with his own teammate like last weekend :p

he just need to think more sober and think as a team player, or maybe scare him with a replacement

Thats truly optimistic replies out here ....

Massa needs to understand a few things before he gets into the thick of the things. Look at Hamilton from 2007 or Kimi from 2005. They did win some races but what pushed their points up was their consistency. They constantly kept hitting the top three spots. I think thats what Massa needs to do. Just maintain his calm and put the best drive and consolidate the points you can get.

There was absolutely no necessity for him to push at Kimi. If its was either a Mclaren or a BWM at the helm and if he was chasing them, it would look great .. but chasing your own team mate won't work. If you are trying to overtake a car of exactly the same build ... then you can do it only when you keep up with Kimi and pass him when he makes a mistake.

Though Massa had a lesser fuel load, he din make use of it. Kimi almost stayed within 1 or 2 seconds of Massa's timing. Frustration can only lead to making wrong decisions. He doesn't need more problems to add to his absensce of traction trouble !! Better keep urself to the road and stick to ur position.

I doubt whether he would win any !! Absence of electronic aids & rise of BMW might just pip Massa frm winning a gp this time ...

I think he will win due to the fact he drives a red car and things may not always go well for kimi, also he will find himself in the right place at the right time

Yeah Massa will win a race this year (maybe in Spain or in France) but he can't win the championship in 2008.

Yes Messa can win a race or two, but have to do it quickly and early in the season, otherwise later in the season he will have to support Kimi's fight for WDC and WMC with the Silver Arrow.

I think he's placing far too much pressure on himself, and hes on the edge. I mean he went into the wall in turn 1 at Australia, i think he was trying to gain to many places at once, then his over-ambitious move on Coulthard, also at turn 1.

Then we come to Malaysia, and i dont think it was something Massa was completly at fault with, but once again, maybe he was pushing it too much and clippd too much curb and voilla. screwed up.

I think he needs to cool down, bide his time abit, get some safe and secure laptimes in and then belt it when its necessary IE in/outlaps e.t.c, because right now, I think Fernie or Kubica may be shaping up for some Red overalls next year.
