    Felipe Massa says he is not limiting talks about his future solely to Williams as he looks to extend his stay in Formula One into a 15th season.Williams are yet to confirm either of its drivers for next season and although the British outfit is likely to retain Valtteri Bottas for a fifth year, rumours have circled over Massas future at the team.Jenson Button has been linked with a return to the team he started his F1 career with in 2000, while Sergio Perezs non-committal stance over his future at Force India has seen him also emerge as a potential target for Williams.When asked whether he has started contract negotiations with Williams, Massa revealed he has been in contact with multiple teams.The talks is for sure happening since a little bit of time, Massa said. I would not say just here, in this team, but around. I think now we dont have 100 percent the right answer and at the time will be the right answer, so we see what is going to happen.I dont want to really say names of teams or whatever but I am interested in being able to drive in a team that I feel important, that I feel that we can have a good result, a good job, and if I dont have that, maybe I will not be here next year.Massa -- who made his F1 debut with Sauber in 2002 -- said he is only interested in securing a drive at a team where he feels valued and admitted that if that is not a possibility, he may consider a switch to another series.Im doing what I love to do, which is racing, but Im not here just to participate. Im here to do what I feel that I can do, and to feel happy and to feel that I am an important key in the team that I am working for, and if I dont have that Im not interested to carry on.You always have some interests outside but I think maybe when the decision is one hundred per cent sure, we will see what we are looking at after that.

DETROIT -- JaCoby Jones is the latest youngster to give the Detroit Tigers a boost in their push for a postseason spot.Jones doubled twice in his second major league game, then dashed home for the winning run on a sacrifice fly by Tyler Collins in the ninth inning to lift the Tigers over the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on Wednesday.After a day after doubling, singling and driving in two runs in his debut, Jones scored twice to help the Tigers complete a three-game sweep.Hes been a real spark plug for us -- a shot in the arm, teammate Justin Verlander said. Its a lot of fun to watch, and hopefully its the beginning of an amazing career.The Tigers acquired Jones last year when they traded Joakim Soria to Pittsburgh. Around the same time, they also traded David Price and Yoenis Cespedes, receiving pitchers Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Michael Fulmer in those deals.Fulmer has become a front-runner for rookie of the year this season, and Norris and Boyd have also made contributions.

With two outs in the fourth, Abreu connected for his 19th homer of the year. Avila followed with a drive to the bushes beyond the wall in center, giving Chicago a 2-0 lead against his former team.Verlander did not allow another baserunner after Avilas home run. Detroit scored a run on Andrew Romines single in the fifth, and J.D. Martinez tied it with a two-out RBI single in the eighth.The Tigers came into the day one game behind Baltimore for the American Leagues second wild card.OLD FRIENDSAvila spent his entire career in Detroit before this season, and Verlander laughed when asked about giving up the home run to his former teammate.I know Im going to be hearing about it, Verlander said.
