By the end of the 2013 Formula 1 season, Felipe Massa will have worn the Scuderia Ferrari race suit for eight years, the second longest-serving driver behind Michael Schumacher\'s 11 years.
Incidentally, Massa\'s first year with Ferrari in 2006 also marked Schumacher\'s last year with the Italian outfit. After Schumacher, Massa was paired with Kimi Raikkonen from 2007 to 2009, before the latter\'s contract was bought out by the team to make way for Fernando Alonso, who has been Massa\'s partner for the past four years.
Having teamed up with three different world champions for the past eight years, Massa was certainly qualified to answer a question thrown at him by Italian sport newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport as to who he believed was his strongest teammate.
\"Fernando\" was Massa\'s answer. \"Schumacher was as quick, but in terms of intelligence, Alonso is better because he manages to put everything together perfectly.\"
Wait...did Massa just imply that Alonso is the better F1 driver than Schumacher? If so, do you agree with him?
