Felipe Massa will no longer be a Ferrari driver come the beginning of next season.
Speculation was mounting throughout the campaign whether the Brazilian would be offered a new contract having signed a one-year deal at the beginning of the last campaign.
But it was confirmed via Massa’s Twitter last when he ‘tweeted’ last night:
“From 2014 I will no longer be driving for Ferrari. I would like to thank the team.”
Massa has undergone a turbulent season for Ferrari with just one podium finish coming third in the race at Barcelona and has achieved less than half of his partner, Fernando Alonso’s points.
The 32-year-old has been at Ferrari since 2006 with his highlight being a win in his hometown of Brazil in 2008.
It remains to be seen whether Massa will continue in Formula One or consider his retirement.
Kimi Raikkonen has been announced as Massa's successor on a two-year deal with the option of an extra year.
