There have been no developments regarding Felipe Massa’s future at Ferrari despite the recent shake up in Formula 1 but the Brazilian was positive that his career post the current season will fall in place.

Michael Schumacher announced his retirement from F1 at the end of 2012 after he was replaced by Lewis Hamilton, whose McLaren seat would be filled in by Sergio Perez.

But the underperforming Brazilian steered clear from questions regarding his own drive at the Italian team despite facing pressure throughout the season.

“Nothing at the moment but I’m pretty confident things will be OK,” Massa said.

Perez was tipped as the driver partner Fernando Alonso next year but after the Mexican’s appointment at McLaren, the move has left the Massa a bit relaxed.

“Well, I think maybe. I don’t know,” he said. “I’m pretty confident things are going in the right direction. Also, I think Sergio is doing a good job this year and he showed his performance and I’m happy that he can sign for a big team as well.

“Let's concentrate on having a good result and then we will see. Things are not signed so it's better not to talk so much and concentrate on the job,” he added hoping to put on a strong show in the remaining six races of the season.
