Felipe Massa moved to rescue his crumbling career with a strong performance in Monaco.

Already on notice even before the 2012 opener began, the struggling Brazilian has had a nightmare start to this year's campaign, triggering rumours Monaco was his very last chance to shine.

He then qualified within a tenth of his on-form teammate Fernando Alonso in the Principality, and in the race finished in the 'train' within sight of winner Mark Webber.

"Felipe delivered a brilliant and feisty performance all weekend long," said team boss Stefano Domenicali.

"I am particularly happy for Felipe, who needed a positive result," he added. "I'm sure this weekend really represents a fresh start to the season for him."
