Following a recent string of improved results, Felipe Massa is about to learn whether he will continue driving for Ferrari beyond the end of this season.

A day after the Brazilian's fourth-place finish in the Korean Grand Prix, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo tells RAI state radio that he will talk with Massa at length on Tuesday "and then we'll make a decision."

Massa also finished fourth in the Italian GP last month, then took second in the Japanese GP eight days ago for his first podium result in nearly two years.

Massa hasn't won a race since a life-threatening accident at the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2009 and his contract expires at the end of this year. He is ninth in the drivers' standings.
