Felipe Massa has revealed that he is in talks to become a Formula One pundit on television.
Brazil's UOL Esporte claims the Brazilian is set to embark on a television career. However, the Former Ferrari driver has ruled out working for the country's own broadcaster TV Globo.
"I will not work with Globo because they are not coming to the races," said Massa.
UOL reports that Massa has been negotiating with Sky Italia, whose current broadcasting team includes Jean Alesi and Jacques Villeneuve, and former GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi - who also serves as a GP2 commentator in the UK.
"If I do some work on television, I will be at the track, so I'm talking to other people outside of Brazil," Massa admitted.
"My idea is that I would come to five or six races a year. And for now, this is not what is happening with Globo."
Massa said he thinks ex-drivers do a good job in TV roles once their driving careers conclude.
"I don't know if they ask the best questions, but they often ask interesting questions. They know what they are talking about because it's something they lived," he said.
