I don't see how these guys are better than Massa, just because they're new shouldn't mean anything for a team like Ferrari. He isn't the best of the new people, his qualifying hasn't been outstanding and his race pace consists of looking after the tyres and driving into a point position. Is that even what a top team needs?
Well done that Ferrari have noticed him. He is by far the best of the new people - although I think that Kobayashi should also be on the Ferrari radar.
People will argue that means he'll consistently get points for Ferrari, that's not what they need. And they have that with Massa now anyway, a guy who's also a proven race winner, pole sitter and podium finisher. So there's no real logic to rid Massa of someone who isn't remarkably better (i.e: Hamilton, Alonso, Vettel, possibly Button/Webber, I wouldn't say Rosberg or returned-Schumacher would be much of an improvement)
I don't really understand how or why Massa is being so underrated. Especially when it comes to talk of, basically, inferior drivers taking up his place. He's not even old.
