May 21 (GMM) Two weeks after utterly dominating the Turkish grand prix at his favourite circuit, Ferrari's Felipe Massa has admitted that he is not similarly fond of Monaco.
"I have to admit that this is not one of my favourite circuits," the Brazilian said as he arrived in Monte Carlo ahead of the highly popular street race.Despite insisting at Istanbul that he can be competitive at every circuit on the calendar, the 27-year-old concedes that the tight confines of the historic Principality are not to his liking."In terms of driving pleasure, I prefer the fast flowing places like Turkey, Bahrain and Barcelona for example."But that does not mean we cannot be strong here," Massa added."You always find tracks you like more than others, but this does not mean you cannot be competitive at those you are not so keen on."Ferrari struggled to keep up with 2007 Monaco pacesetters McLaren last year, but Massa thinks the Maranello based team is in "better shape" ahead of this year's late May edition.
