Felipe Massa is not going anywhere for now, insists Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali.

Since his championship tilt of 2008, Brazilian Massa has struggled to get on terms with his new teammate Fernando Alonso.

But there have also been suggestions the 30-year-old is no longer the same after recovering from near-fatal head injuries sustained in mid 2009.

Domenicali told La Repubblica newspaper that Ferrari still believes in Massa.

"The fan in the bar says 'Trust me, he is as strong as he was before Budapest'. He will be supported in every way.

"Meanwhile, the contract will not be touched; he is safe until December 2012," added Domenicali.
