Montezemolo said in May that there is "no question" Ferrari will honour its 2012 contract with the Brazilian, who struggled markedly in 2010 amid rumours Mark Webber or Nico Rosberg might be drafted in to replace him.

The rumours only intensified when Fernando Alonso's contract was extended through 2016, raising suggestions Massa's days at Maranello are numbered.

When asked about Ferrari's driver lineup this week, Montezemolo told La Repubblica that Spaniard Alonso is "a great driver".

"I am very happy to have signed a contract with him for a long cooperation, as we had with Michael Schumacher in his time," he said.

"The fact that we will be together at least until 2016 is confirmation that both parties are happy with this relationship.

"I am also very happy this year with Felipe, who is reacting very well. We are pleased with our drivers; we need to improve the car to get Ferrari back where we want to be," added Montezemolo.
