Rome, September 11 - Felipe Massa has confirmed
reports he will leave Ferrari's Formula One team at the end of
the season, amid intense speculation Finn Kimi Raikkonen is set
to rejoin the Italian glamour outfit.
"From 2014 I will no longer be driving for Ferrari," Massa,
who has been with Ferrari since 2006, said via his Twitter
account, @Felipe1Massa.
"Thank you also to my wife and all of my family, to my fans
and all my Sponsors.
"From each one of you I have always received a great
support!
"Right now I want to push as hard as possible with Ferrari
for the remaining 7 races.
"For next year, I want to find a team that can give me a
competitive car to win many more races and challenge for the
Championship which remains my greatest objective! Thank you
all".
Raikkonen, who is currently competing for Lotus, was the
last man to win the driver's championship for Ferrari, in 2007.
If he rejoins the team he will form a formidable
partnership with two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, whose
contract with Ferrari runs until the end of 2016.
Massa joined Ferrari in 2006 having raced for
three seasons with Sauber, who used Ferrari-designed engines.
The Brazilian came within a whisker of winning the world
championship in 2008 when he won his home grand prix in Brazil
on the last day.
He was denied when Britain's Lewis Hamilton overtook Timo
Glock on the second-last corner to finish fifth and win the
title by a point.
