After an impressive performance last weekend that saw him take his first podium in 2 years, Felipe Massa has signed on with Ferrari for one additional year.
An extremely brief team announcement read as follows:
Scuderia Ferrari announces that it has renewed its contract with the driver Felipe
Massa to the end of the 2013 race season. The Scuderia’s driver line-up for next year
is therefore made up of Fernando Alonso and the aforementioned Felipe Massa."
Rumours have continued to circulate that Sebastian Vettel is poised to join the team in 2014, but president Luca di Montezemelo has recently rubbished those claims.
2013 will be Massa’s 8th year at the team, having joined at the start of the 2006 season alongside Michael Schumacher.
