Massa insists 'no problems' with Alonso (GMM) Felipe Massa insists he has no problem with Ferrari's appointment of Fernando Alonso as his 2010 teammate.
The pair clashed infamously after the 2007 Nurburgring race, when following an on-track scrape they argued in the native tongue of Italy while waiting to go onto the podium.
"Shortly after that, we got over it together," Massa, who several times this week has tested karts in his native Sao Paulo, is quoted as saying by TV Globo. "It's in the past. There are no problems between us."
Massa also said he does not fear the arrival of the Spaniard, who is regarded by some as the most complete current F1 racer.
"He is a great driver," the Brazilian agrees, "but so were my two previous teammates, Kimi and Schumacher. I am calm. Today Ferrari is a team well able to work with two drivers.
"Raikkonen didn't talk much but we got on together well. He was a great teammate and I hope that Fernando is too.
"You know that in Ferrari you will always have a good driver next to you," said the 28-year-old.
