Massa insists he can win anywhere

User Rating: / 0
Felipe Massa has dismissed suggestions that he can only win races on certain favourite tracks. The Brazilian has a growing reputation for specialising at a handful of circuits, especially after winning for a third successive year at Istanbul Park on Sunday.

He is also regarded as the man to beat at Sakhir and Interlagos, but his critics say his style is too ragged and his performances too inconsistent for him to thrive at every track.

Massa disputed this, insisting that he is capable of winning anywhere.

"I have good feelings in many circuits," he said.

"It doesn't mean that because I won here, I cannot win at other tracks.

"For sure, it's a fantastic circuit and I always feel happy to come here, but I think I can be competitive on many tracks.

"Last year I set six pole positions and I started on the front row a lot, so even this year I can be competitive at every race.

"I cannot say this race I am [competitive] and this race I'm not."

But he acknowledged that Turkey has particular emotional resonance for him as the scene of his first pole and win in 2006.

"It is just fantastic to drive here," Massa said.

"It gives you a lot of pleasure as a driver – so many different corners, and also having a great car like I had today it is definitely fantastic to fight for the victory and win.

"It is just great to come back here to a track where I won for the first time.

"That is always special."

Medal rush: Q&A with Bernie Ecclestone

Q: You have suggested gold medals should be introduced. How would that work?
Bernie Ecclestone: My idea is that instead of points we should award medals to the drivers finishing first to third in a race, gold for the winner, silver for the second placed driver and bronze for the driver who comes third.
