All acting here like it can't get any worse for Felipe Massa while reality isn't even close. He's a Ferrari driver, earns millions a year, is loved around the world, has had some fantastic moments in F1 and came close to winning the world title in 2008. How many times has he won his home GP? That were the special times, he will never forget those and I'm sure he will once retire from F1 having won again.
'Massa has fallen from grace'? If that happened, then that happened way before 2010.
He currently has the most complete driver in F1 as his teammate, who also happens to be a master at extracting the max from slower/weaker cars. Not only that, but his team mate is also one who knows how to play the games behind the scenes and make the team his. We all knew Massa was going to struggle against Alonso, it's nothing knew. But nevertheless Ferrari can't get around Massa. Small critisicm aside, the CAR IS BAD so the blame lies mainly at Ferrari. The Scuderia still wants him and that's says all you need to know. Felipe is not a bad driver> give him Vettel's RedBull and he will dominate. It's that simple, but the current situation is very misleading.
Massa is at a good age, being Alonso's team mate also has it's pro's and if the cars gets better, daddy Brazil will hit back. To be honest, yes Felipe loses determination when the car is not up to it.
