Massa out to extend Turkish run

4:19 pm on 4 June 2009

Brazilian Felipe Massa is hoping he can maintain Ferrari's mid-season recovery with a fourth successive victory at his favourite track in this weekend's Turkish Grand Prix.

Just two weeks after finishing fourth at Monaco Massa believes continued improvements have given him a chance of landing the Italian team's first win this year.

Kimi Raikkonen finished second for Ferrari at Monaco and Massa says additional aerodynamic development at Istanbul should improve the car still further.

He says it's hard to pinpoint why the Istanbul Park track suits him better than some other circuits.

However. the winner at Monaco, Jenson Button, likes the anti-clockwise circuit too, and the championship leader says it has good passing opportunities.

Button's team boss Ross Brawn says they have a new front wing for the car with some aerodynamic updates and rear suspension elements.
