about Felipe Massa

Felipe Massa (Portuguese pronunciation: [fi?lipi ?mas?], born 25 April 1981) is a Brazilian Formula One racing driver who currently drives for Williams. Massa started his career in go-karting from the age of eight continuing in national and regional championships for seven years. He moved into Formula Chevrolet and claimed the championship. He moved in Italian Formula Renault in 2000 and won the title along with the European championship. Massa went into Euro Formula 3000 taking the championship.

Massa started his Formula One career with Sauber before joining Scuderia Ferrari as a test driver for 2003. He returned to Sauber for 2004 and 2005 before rejoining Ferrari where he won two races in 2006 including his home Grand Prix becoming the first Brazilian since Ayrton Senna to win the Brazilian Grand Prix. Massa won three races in 2007, finishing 4th in the Drivers' Championship. He finished second in the 2008 Drivers' World Championship after a long title battle with Lewis Hamilton. At the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix, Massa was injured by a suspension spring off the Brawn GP car of Rubens Barrichello. Massa was forced to miss the rest of the season but returned in 2010. Massa suffered a dip in form in 2011 scoring no podiums but consistently scoring points. Massa contributed to Ferrari's Constructors Championships in 2007 and 2008 and was under contract to race for the team until the end of the 2013 season. On 10 September 2013, he confirmed he would be leaving Ferrari at the end of the 2013 season. Massa replaced Pastor Maldonado alongside Valtteri Bottas at Williams from 2014.

Massa announced that he would retire from Formula One at the end of the 2016 season. However, upon the abrupt retirement of 2016 Formula One Champion Nico Rosberg, Massa returned to Williams for a one-year contract to partner rookie Lance Stroll, when Valtteri Bottas left Williams to fill the vacant seat at Mercedes. On 4 November 2017, Massa confirmed that he would be retiring from Formula One at the end of the 2017 season.
