As speculation continues, Ferrari attempts to explain the reasoning behind its decision to retain Felipe Massa for an eighth season.
While numerous drivers had been linked to the Brazilian's seat, which according to some was under threat before Melbourne, ever since Ferrari confirmed the Brazilian for 2013 there has been further media mumbling as to the reason why.
In a brief piece that would do the Horse Whisperer proud, the Maranello outfit attempts to explain.
The decision to extend the agreement with Felipe Massa for another season was carefully weighed up and not just the obvious one. Nor was it inevitable because of the lack of alternatives, nor was it in anyway guided by the wishes of his current team-mate, because Ferrari alone chooses its drivers. Many knocked on the doors of Maranello, some were considered, but in the end, a logical conclusion prevailed: there is no one better than Felipe to deliver hic et nunc (here and now) the speed, talent and capacity to work for the good of the team.
The Brazilian's career displays these qualities as does the fact that harmony reigns within the team, which is united and shows solidarity even in the most difficult moments. Fans of the Reds know the score: some decisions are made solely and exclusively for the good of Ferrari. The rest is all idle chatter.
