Massa delighted with qualifying

By on Saturday, September 8, 2012

Felipe Massa expressed his delight at qualifying third for the Italian Grand Prix.

Massa, whose position at the team has been frequently questioned, will start behind the two McLaren drivers on Sunday.

“I am very happy with this qualifying, the best in a long time for me. This is a very important race for Ferrari and I will do my best to get a good result", he said.

"We tried to make as much use as possible of the slipstream, which requires a lot of concentration, but it’s true that in the end, I got my best time when I had no one in front of me"

With Fernando Alonso down in tenth, Massa knows that the pressure will be on him to take the fight to the McLaren drivers.

"We have a chance of beating McLaren, even if they are very strong. For me, getting back on the podium, here in front of our fans,
would be wonderful!"

Massa has not finished on the podium since the 2010 Korean Grand Prix
