Felipe Massa has admitted that he needs to up his game if he's to remain with Ferrari in 2014, but says it's not a matter of pace, but finishing races without making errors.

The Brazilian has been outscored 16 points to 61 in the last five races by team-mate Fernando Alonso and has made several costly errors, prompting Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo to question Massa's position.

The 32-year-old concedes his position at Ferrari after 2013 isn't clear and rests on him securing more points in the next few races.

"The results will decide whether I stay here or move teams," he said. "The possibility to stay [at Ferrari] is there, but the most important thing is the results.

"I'm happy with the way I'm driving in terms of pace - in qualifying and race pace.

"We just need to finish the races in the normal way and get consistency. In doing that, the results will be there."
