Massa to retire from Formula One. Again.

November 4, 2017

Brazilian Formula One driver Felipe Massa announced his retirement from Formula One (for the 2nd time) at the end of the season, on Saturday (Nov 4).


Massa (36) also announced retirement last season but was recalled by the Williams team after Valtteri Bottas left for Mercedes following the retirement of 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg.

Mass said in a message posted on social media, “As you know, last year I decided to announce my retirement in Formula One but because of the Williams request I decided to do another season.”

“But this time will be my last race in Brazil of Formula One and my last race in Abu Dhabi,” he said, thanking his family, fans and sponsors.

Just because Massa is calling it a day in Formula One doesn’t mean he won’t pursue other races & categories, “I really hope that you can support me next year or maybe in the future in other races and in other categories.”

Massa won 11 races with Ferrari. Impressive to say the least.

Found this video on YouTube – lots of fun. Check out Massa having fun with Alonso!

Massa’s last victory was at the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix.

Should be interesting to see where Massa pops up next. Stay tuned race fans!
