After the retreat of Schumacher in 2007, Massa was matched up as a team leader with Kimi Raikkonen. This had not been subsequently ending; by the final race, Massa lost the speed and conceded the lead to his partner, Raikkonen who could become a winner.
Felipe Massa won six times, the year after and outperformed Raikkonen, the minute he was about to cross the finishing line on the track of the closing race and everyone was confident he’d get the house title but every story has a turn, that was somewhat sour for Massa as Lewis Hamilton took over the closing tournament.

But it appears that Massa had a little tough luck when it comes to qualifying with Alonso, the example of which could be pulled in the Ferrari race in America, in which Massa was intentionally incurred with a gearbox change penalty, so as to ease Alonso move up the power system. Felipe’s wounds are not fixed up correctly, when in the 1st half of 2013, he met with several spins and crashes that further impeded Massa’s effort. At the conclusion of the year Ferrari replaced him with former teammate Raikkonen and he changed to Williams in 2014.
