To understand Ferrariís logic, youíve got to consider what theyíre looking for. Ferrari wants someone who isnít bad tempered and makes Ferrari their home, rather than a mere employer. This is why they never really gelled with Raikkonen, despite winning a championship together.

Massa knows there is a clear hierarchy within Ferrari, he knows his place. That might be more appealing to Ferrari than a driver who might want to challenge Alonso.

Massa has picked up his performance in the last few races. At Spa he was fast, and at Monza he played to play the rear-gunner role for Alonso. Singapore was a feisty, spirited effort; he fought hard after his puncture and still scored points.

The only reservation I have; is Massa too slow to be Alonsoís rear gunner? Too often he has been nowhere, even struggling to score points when Alonso has been in the top three. He cannot aid Alonso whilst performing like that.

I think Vettel will move to Ferrari, but as with Raikkonen and Alonso, itís a question of when. Moving to Ferrari in 2014 might be especially beneficial. In 2014, engines and powertrain knowhow is going to be a key performance indicator. Iíd rather have Ferrari behind me, who have vast experience in developing new engines, rather than Renault who are ultimately a supplier to Red Bull.

The electric technology is also an area where Ferrari is going to be strong, as they are developing electric boost devices for their road cars.

KERS highlighted a deficiency with Red Bull. They didnít have it in 2009, and their system from 2011-onwards hasnít run at full capacity, plus has been unreliable. Red Bullís strength is the aerodynamics and chassis of the car, but when it comes to implementing the new mechanical and electronic changes for 2014, Ferrari surely have an advantage.

So, Massa can been confirmed at Ferrari for 2013. Massaís performances and gutsy passing since Spa may have saved his seat at Ferrari. Youíve to say, in the context of Ferrari wanting a donkey to Alonso, Massa isnít a bad choice. Heís just got to continue scoring points and trying to support Alonso, he cannot support Nando whilst in 10th, a position he has often found himself in this year.

There is a lot of moving and shaking for 2013; two new drivers at Sauber, almost certainly a new driver at Force India, the Hamilton move. 2013 should be intriguing, especially with the rules staying static for next year, hopefully meaning the competition will still be close.
