Domenicali: Very Important For Massa To Keep Improved Form

Stefano Domenicali has stressed the importance of Felipe Massa maintaining his Canadian GP form through the rest of the season. Massa has one year left on his contract but replacement rumours fail to go away after a poor start to the season after being dominated by team mate Fernando Alonso last year. The latest words from Domenicali in The Independent don't excatly extingish the chances of Massa leaving sooner than his contract ends.

Domenicali talking about Massa's above par performance in Canada: "That is what we want to see from Felipe, It's why I'm always pushing when we have difficult moments, saying that we need to deliver because we believe in him."

"In Canada he did a great job because he didn't give up, even in the last few centimetres of the race. That is what I want to see from him from now up until the end of the season. It's very important for him, but also for the team."

Massa in Canada got caught out passing a backmarker, loosing grip on the wet surface offline, clipping the wall and damaging his front wing. Despite the major setback, he fought his way back to pip Kamui Kobayashi for sixth place right at the finish.
