(form autosport.com) Former Grand Prix driver Mark Blundell is tipping Felipe Massa to mount a strong championship challenge this season. Blundell believes the Brazilian has served his apprenticeship at Ferrari and is ready to step into the limelight. Speaking on the stage at the Autosport International Show, Blundell said: "I think Massa has the potential to give Lewis [Hamilton], Kimi [Raikkonen], and everyone else a big headache this year. "I think he's got a real chance of pulling off a world title. He's done his homework in the time he's been at Ferrari. He's learned from Michael [Schumacher], he supported Kimi well last year, and the team has supported him in return with a new contract. "I think Ferrari will give him everything he needs to go for the championship this season and I think he could do it."
