Ferrari has re-signed Brazilian driver Felipe Massa for the 2013 season amid reports of Sebastian Vettel joining the Italian team.

Massa, who has endured a poor 2012 season, has improved in recent races, finishing second in Japan and fourth in South Korea on Sunday to greatly improve his points tally.

The contract extension for Massa still leaves the door open for Vettel to join Ferrari in 2014 as speculated, however the Italians have tried to play down the possibility of that happening, insisting they want Fernando Alonso to be their main man.

Meanwhile, Massa insisted he was delighted with his re-signing and told Ferrari fans he’d work hard to get more points in 2013.

“The team and also all the fans can rest assured that I will do all in my power to help the Scuderia reach the targets it sets itself each year,” Massa told the Ferrari website.

Massa has collected just 81 points this season to sit ninth in the Drivers’ Standings, while Ferrari are languishing 77 points behind Manufacturers’ leaders Red Bull.
