As Ferrari held a farewell party for the departing Felipe Massa at Mugello over the weekend, the Brazilian warned Raikkonen to be fighting fit for his duel with Fernando Alonso next year.

“Kimi and Ferrari know each other very well already,” Massa is quoted by La Repubblica.

“But he is not very familiar with Fernando, so I think he should [go to] the gym and get ready,” he smiled. “Fernando is a very strong driver, very strong. It will not be easy for [Raikkonen].”

The Auto Bild and Italiaracing publications are reporting that Massa’s deal to move to Williams next year, to replace Pastor Maldonado, is now effectively done. It is believed the deal will include the sponsorship of the Brazilian oil company Petrobras.

But Massa insisted: “I will go on as a driver, not to plug the holes in someone’s balance sheet.” (GMM)

    I hope that next year will be the opponents of Ferrari to cry… frankly I don’t care about if Raikkonen or Alonso wins, the most important thing is, for me, Ferrari to finally win.
