Massa denies Ferrari link
There has been speculation since last year that Massa has some kind of arrangement with Ferrari for the future.
Massa's rise to F1 has been meteoric with one season of Formula Renault and then a year in the European Formula 3000 series before being plucked from relative obscurity by Sauber.
Massa paid tribute to the team's chief engineer Jacky Eeckelaert for helping him in his career.
"He's really important," Felipe said. "Jacky's a bit like a father to me."
The function at the ACF was attended by a variety of luminaries including the Malaysian ambassador in France Her Excellency Tunku Datuk Nazihah Tunku Mohd Rus.
