Massa says he will decide F1 future
Felipe Massa insists he is in control of his next move in F1, as his current Williams contract runs out.
Rivals Jenson Button and Daniil Kvyat are among drivers linked with the Brazilian veteran's current seat, but 35-year-old Massa said he will not just sit back and wait for decisions to be made.
"Nothing will be done for me," he is quoted by Brazil's UOL. "I will choose what I want.
"I am completely relaxed and just thinking about my work," Massa insisted.
"I don't know what will happen, but I will decide what I do."
Although he has talked about Formula E and Le Mans, Massa confirmed that he wants to stay in F1, where he has raced since 2002, winning 11 grands prix for Ferrari.
And he said he is not interested in staying in F1 "just to participate".
"I believe I'll be on a team that has an important job to be done," said Massa.
"We have already started negotiations, but only time will bring the right answer. We'll see," he concluded.
