Ferrari to announce second driver today? - The Scuderia are set to replace Luca Badoer as Massa's substitute

Published by Christine

The news filling the airwaves yesterday was of Massa's imminent but non-urgent surgery which will mean he continues to recuperate as the 2009 season progresses.

Ferrari are confident the Brazilian will return next year, and would no doubt rather he did that at 100% rather than return too early.

We know they would be foolish to retain Badoer in the second seat at the team, and it appears likely Ferrari will announce their replacement driver today. We await their decision with interest.
