Luca di Montezemolo has said Felipe Massa needs to give “the performances of a number one driver” in the final races of 2010:

Felipe is and will always stay a number one driver for Ferrari.

I expect the performances of a number one driver from him ?ǣ both in the next four races and, with different tyres, next year. Those will be crucial to bring us wins next season and to take important points from our opponents in the battle for this world championship.
Luca di Montezemolo

Last week di Montezemolo urged Massa to support team mate Fernando Alonso’s bid for the championship by taking points off his rivals.

In a statement on the official Ferrari website today he added:

Fernando sounded very focused and determined, just like the whole team. It?s an important time and I?m sure that everyone will give everything they have in order to achieve our objectives.

    No guys! Luca is just saying that too boost Massa’s confidence on the track. Obviously, we ALL know Masssa is not fast enough to beat his teammates unless Ferrari sign a sub par driver.

    We have all seen that Felipe needs encouragement all the time from his engineer. He’s not as tough as say Alonso. So he needs to hear encouragement to do well so Alonso can take the championship.

    2011, will be the same thing. Alonso i going to destroy Massa again.
