Massa buoyed by Ferrari gains
Felipe Massa believes Ferrari has made a genuine step forward in form with its update package at the British Grand Prix - as it targets its first win of the season. The Brazilian and his team-mate Fernando Alonso will start on the second row at Silverstone and, although it is not Ferrari's best qualifying result of the season, the team is encouraged because it has got so close to pacesetter Red Bull Racing. Massa says developments introduced at Silverstone have brought the downforce improvements hoped for ? and he thinks that could pay dividends when it comes to helping the team use the harder Pirelli tyre.
