Brazilian Massa is seeking a new challenge after his eight-year stint as a Ferrari driver was brought to an end with the signing of Kimi Raikkonen for next season.
Massa, who has 11 career grand prix wins to his name, had been linked with the vacancy created by Raikkonen's departure from Lotus, although the suspicion is the 32-year-old will do well to beat Nico Hulkenberg to that coveted drive, with a seat in a midfield-running team a more likely option.
Asked by reporters ahead of the Indian Grand Prix how his plans for 2014 were shaping up, Massa said: "When the time is right I will comment. For sure, I am talking with a few teams, including even Williams."
Although Williams are suffering a dismal campaign, with just one point on the board heading into round 16 of the season, Massa insists he is on the lookout for a competitive package next season.
"I will not go to a small team," he said. "I will go to the team that has possibilities to build a good car. I'm not a pay driver, so I will not go to a team just because I have a sponsor. I will go for my experience and for what I have already achieved in my career."
Massa is keen to sign off his Ferrari career on a high note over the final four races, and added: "I want to try the best I can to score as many points as possible.
"The team is still fighting for second place in the championship and this is very important for us and it's the only thing I have in my mind."
