Massa: 'Hamilton deserves to win this championship'

Felipe Massa won't be heeding calls from Nico Rosberg to assist him in winning the 2014 Drivers' Championship if it comes down to it in a fortnight.

The Brazilian insists he will be pushing to win the race in Abu Dhabi, a scenario which would drastically reduce Rosberg's chances of securing the title as, if even if he were to secure second, title rival Lewis Hamilton would need to finish just fifth to win.

"I'm not helping anyone," exclaimed Massa after Rosberg said he "needed some Felipe Massa help" to increase his chances in Abu Dhabi.

"I told him: I want to win the race, and not to help you! Nobody helped me when I could have won the championship, in fact a certain German only harmed me," he added in reference to Timo Glock's decision not to pit in Brazil 2008, handing title victory to Hamilton.

Whether he believes Hamilton deserved that title is another story, but this season, Massa reckons the Briton has earned it when compared to Rosberg.

"I think Hamilton does deserve the championship. But sometimes things turn out in a different way, as we have seen several times."
