Massa says he intends to stay at Williams

Felipe Massa says he has every intention to stay at the Williams Formula 1 team next year.

The Brazilian joined the Grove team from Ferrari for the start of last season and has regained the form that helped him fight for the title in 2008 after many years struggling in Fernando Alonso's shadow at Ferrari.

Massa and his team reckon he is driving at his best, and the Brazilian insists he just wants to stay at Williams to make it even stronger.

"What I plan is to make Williams an even more competitive team," Massa told Brazil's UOL Esporte.

"It is a great pleasure to be there and I do not think much about my age.

"While I have this pleasure, I intend to keep driving.

"I have this contract year and an option and I do not see why I would leave."

Massa, 34, insists his dream of starting again where he left off in 2008 - fighting for the world championship - remains alive.

"It will be my dream until I know that it is impossible," he said.
