Alonso sends Massa best wishes
11 September 2013 – Fernando Alonso has wished outgoing Ferrari team-mate well for future years after the Brazilian's announcement that he is to leave the outfit at the end of the season.
Following weeks of speculation, Massa confirmed his anticipated departure from the Maranello-based squad on Tuesday, bringing to an end an eight-year partnership, four of which have been spent racing alongside two-time World Champion Alonso.
And reflecting on their time together at the Italian marque, Alonso said he is certain the 32-year-old will be "a strong opponent" if he secures a drive with a rival team.
"All the luck for the next few years!" Alonso said via social networking site Twitter. "You will be a strong opponent in any team! And we still have seven GPs to have some fun!"
Kimi Räikkönen is expected to be revealed as Alonso's new team-mate later today.
