As the teams' attentions turn towards the Belgian Grand Prix, Felipe Massa has been keeping his skills sharp with an appearance at Interlagos.

Massa drove in the two free practice sessions of the Copa Fiat (previously the Trofeo Linea) as a guest driver and was quickest in both of the sessions. With the Belgian GP just two weeks away, Massa will not race at Interlagos but he said that he was surprised to be so competitive during the two sessions.

"A great job has been done and the car is much improved, more stable and easier to drive," Massa told the official Ferrari website. "These characteristics are a great help to drivers who, like me, come from single-seaters.

"Today, having one set of tyres more than the others helped me (as a guest driver) but I was not expecting to be quicker than excellent and experienced drivers like Christian Fittipaldi, Cacà Bueno and André Bragantini, who are leading the championship. Tomorrow, I will enjoy the races as a spectator and it will be a lot of fun!"
