Massa confirms talks with Williams
24 October 2013 – Outgoing Ferrari driver Felipe Massa has confirmed that he is speaking to Williams over a potential 2014 seat, but admits he is still far from finalising his future plans.
The 32-year-old Brazilian, who will be replaced by former team-mate Kimi Räikkönen next season, says the Grove-based outfit is one of "a few teams" he is communicating with at present, having previously revealed discussions with Lotus and McLaren.
"I am talking with a few teams, including Williams, but I have nothing to say at the moment,” Massa told reporters at the Buddh International Circuit. "Sometimes you hear so many things about yourself. At the right time I will comment about that."
Massa went on to reiterate that if he cannot secure a drive with a team that has the ability to produce a strong car, he will not simply compete to make up the numbers.
"I'm pretty confident that I'm going to find an interesting direction," he said. "Until you are sure it is a little risk, but I'm positive. I will not go to a small team. I will go to the team that has some possibilities to make a good car. I hope I can find this solution."
