Massa hopes for hat-trick in Brazil

Massa hopes for hat-trick in BrazilSao Paulo, Nov 23 : Brazilian driver Felipe Massa has hinted he will put Ferrari team strategy aside in a bid to win his home Formula One Grand Prix for a third time at Interlagos Sunday.

The 31-year-old has built a reputation for sacrificing personal accolades in favour of team success during his 10-year F1 career, Xinhua reports.

But speaking during a press conference at Interlagos Thursday, Massa did not hide his desire to add another home victory to his 2006 and 2008 triumphs.

"I want to win again here. This is a special place for me, and who knows, maybe I will win with Alonso coming in second and winning the championship," Massa said.

After a poor start to the season, Massa has accumulated points at a consistent rate in the second half of the year.

He is currently seventh on 107 points.

Massa's Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso - second in the driver's standings, 13 points behind Vettel - is the only driver capable of denying the German his third straight championship victory in Sunday's season-ending race.  (IANS)
