Sep.26 (GMM) Felipe Massa believes he would be a "worthy champion" in 2008 despite the recent overtaking controversy that cost his title rival Lewis Hamilton six points.
The saga means Ferrari's Massa is officially just one point behind the McLaren driver with four races to go, causing some to wonder if a similarly close result after November's Brazilian grand prix might taint the outcome of the championship."If I win by one point, I am the winner. It doesn't change anything," Massa, 27, said in Singapore.The Brazilian backs the FIA's decision to reject the McLaren appeal earlier this week at the International Court of Appeal."Looking at the rules, it was going to be very difficult for them. The result was pretty fair," Massa said.
