Felipe Massa says that the Ferrari F138 has ‘much more potential’ following a positive start to the 2013 season.
Massa collected 22 points from the opening two rounds of the season and sits in fifth place in the championship.
“I know we have only done two races, but I have a good feeling so far this season,” said Massa.
“The work we did with the F138 over the winter has taken us in the right direction and the car has much more potential. Of course, I always want to be fighting for the win, although that did not work out in the first two races, but the signs were good with an excellent race pace and now we have to keep moving forward race by race.”
Massa also believes that several teams remain in the hunt for the championship, with Ferrari moving in the right direction.
“All I can say is that there are definitely more than two teams that are capable of fighting for the wins and the championship,” Massa adds.
“Our team is one of them, with the car moving forward in the right way and it is delivering results on track that we expected when looking at data in the wind tunnel and the factory. In Melbourne we had a car that was capable of winning and in Malaysia the car was again competitive, even if conditions made the race something of a lottery.”
