Nov.3 (GMM) With better form and a new contract in his pocket, Felipe Massa has revealed he is now "relieved" and much happier.

F1's media has spent much of 2012 speculating about the Brazilian's likely successor, as the 31-year-old struggled massively with flagging form.

Now, his speed back on track and all signed up for another season, Massa admitted to Spain's AS newspaper: "Yes, I'm relieved.

"Calm, happy, yes.

"It is clear that the second half of the season has been very different for me from the first, and now I think the continuation (of his Ferrari career) was fair."

In the same vein, he admitted that - earlier - his was not always the happiest face in F1.

"Yes, sometimes I would be in my room, thinking What's wrong with me? I have one of the best jobs in the world, a job envied and loved by everyone and yet I didn't know what wasn't right.

"Now I am 100 per cent happy, everything has changed and I cannot explain why," added Massa.
