Felipe Massa looked as relaxed as one would expect, given this is his home race and that he has been here since shortly after the last race in Japan.
But, also as one would expect, given he was sharing the FIA Press Conference panel with title contender Fernando Alonso, the Ferrari driver was given a relatively easy time with very few questions.
Ahead of the final round of the season, Massa was asked how his life had changed since he became a Ferrari driver. "It has changed a lot," admitted the Brazilian. "There is a lot more media attention and pressure, but that is the same for all drivers who join Ferrari. There is a big change in your public visibility and that is a good thing. As for my year on track, I think I have done quite a good job and I am happy with the way my championship has gone."
Felipe denied feeling extra pressure racing at home. "I think it's all on this guy," he laughed, pointing at Alonso. "And also on Michael.
"My race here?" he continued. "I will be trying to win as it has always been my dream to race here in a competitive car. I will do all I can to help the team of course. It is a bit more difficult after what happened in Japan, but we still have a chance to win the championship. The last race was disappointing for us, but that's motor racing and in this race, we will try and do the best we can. The atmosphere is fine in the team and after what happened to Michael in Japan, we have no worries about the engine."
