Felipe The World Is Faster Than You!

Post by RaySinKa on Thu Sep 01, 2016 2:23 pm

Williams driver Felipe Massa has announced he will retire from Formula 1 at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old revealed his decision to end a 14-year career in the sport on the eve of the Italian Grand Prix.

The Brazilian made his debut in 2002 for Sauber and has also driven for Ferrari, winning 11 of his 242 races.

"I managed to achieve many of my dreams and I am very proud of my career," said Massa, who missed out on the championship by one point in 2008.

Good timing. He's not driven poorly this season, but probably not as his best anymore. Will be a great farewell tour!

It's a bit of a shame Williams couldn't do more with the Mercedes engine.

Good guy! Didn't really pay much attention to his last races, but he only scored 3 points total over the last 8 races vs. Bottas 33 PTS (after being ahead of Bottas after the first 5 races).

I wonder who will replace him! Great candidates out there, but I guess Williams isn't the most desirable place to go with the new rules coming up.

There are very strong rumors about Jenson moving to Williams.

McLaren are crazy if they let their future (Vandoorne) sign somewhere else, that's for sure. Both Button and Alonso seem fairly close to retirement, considering how much they've talked about it already.

I think McLaren would be more interesting to watch if they had a new, hungry driver on board instead of (one of those) moaners...

Vandoorne takes Button's place, Button won't drive in F1 next season. Ron Dennis makes a good decision! Wow! Wink
