Felipe Massa is confident that he will extend his stay with Williams into a third year in 2016.

Massa spent the majority of his Formula 1 career at Ferrari before switching to Williams at the start of 2014.

Massa's arrival coincided with Williams' revival towards the front of the grid and the Brazilian driver has claimed four podiums and a pole position during his time with the team.

"Nothing’s changed at the moment, I don’t see why I should not be there," Massa explained ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

"I’m really enjoying working with the team. The team is really respecting me 100 percent and I think enjoying the way I work with the team as well."

"I see that the team is growing, growing and getting stronger most of the time."

Meanwhile, Williams team-mate Valtteri Bottas says no decision has been made about his future, despite persistent rumours linking him to Ferrari.

"For me there is nothing new to tell you," he said. "As a driver you want [it sorted] as soon as possible, but sometimes you have to wait – that's life."
