Mercedes looks at Massa for DTM seat
Toto Wolff, the boss of Mercedes' motor racing activities, has admitted Felipe Massa is a candidate to move into the German touring car series DTM in 2014.
While also hoping to move to Lotus next year but not ruling out a sabbatical after Ferrari decided to replace him with Kimi Raikkonen, Brazilian Massa recently admitted he might be interested in DTM.
"I do not like endurance races," O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper quoted him as saying, "(but) DTM is something I see as possible for me."
Austrian Wolff, who watched Massa outqualify his Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso in Singapore on Saturday, said the 32-year-old might be in the running for a seat with Mercedes.
"A driver like Felipe, with services as he has shown here, would be a benefit for DTM or any other racing series," he told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.
"He's definitely an interesting driver. We would certainly consider it," admitted Wolff.
