Maranello: Ferrari have extended Felipe Massa's contract for one more season with the Formula One team. The Italian squad made the announcement on Tuesday, saying it has renewed the Brazilian's deal "to the end of the 2013 race season." The move comes two days after Massa's fourth-place finish in the Korean Grand Prix.
Massa also finished fourth in the Italian GP last month, then took second in the Japanese GP eight days ago for his first podium result in nearly two years. Still, Massa hasn't won a race since a life-threatening accident at the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2009. He is ninth in the drivers' standings.
His previous deal was to expire at the end of this season.
