Felipe Massa recently said that money is not the significant factor when it comes to negotiating on the deal to continue in next season’s Formula 1.
By the end of this year, the contract period with Williams will come to an end. However, he is very much keen to stay and continue working with his team beyond this season. Although, there is no confirmation on the extension of his contract period, Massa is quite hopeful that things will take good shape for him. His focus is not on the financial package that will be offered in the new contract. Whether the contract is with Williams or any other team, he will stick to his statement. Under no circumstances will money overpower his decisions.
The racer has never raced considering money as the main factor. He always took part in races thinking about the exciting and positive outcomes. It is such a good feeling to come out of the race as a winner, especially when you see the audience applauding for you. Massa strongly believes that if there is a growth opportunity, he will certainly consider it keeping aside the financial aspect. The racer has made a whole lot of money in his career, which was beyond his imagination. Hence, money should not be the prime issue which would stop him from continuing in the next season.
