Felipe Massa's manager Nicolas Todt reveals that the driver would be interested in a move to Lotus Renault.

Departing Ferrari driver Felipe Massa would be interested in a move to Lotus Renault, according to the Brazilian's manager.

Massa will be replaced by Kimi Raikkonen for the 2014 season, and while Nicolas Todt has revealed that the 32-year-old has attracted interest from other teams, he believes that the most suitable destination would be Lotus.

Todt told Canal Plus: "What is certain is that other teams are interested in Felipe.

"Felipe will never play second fiddle in a small team, so what we need to do is find him a car that allows him to play a leading role in Formula 1.

"For sure, the best team today, the most interesting seat, is the one left behind by Raikkonen."

Massa will leave Ferrari after eight seasons with the Italian-based team.
