Massa's Driver Bio

Years of service alongside some of the true greats of modern Formula One. Schumacher, Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso have all had hugely successful campaigns alongside Felipe Massa in Ferrari. However, despite winning races and a strong show of speed and strategy Massa was always regarded as the second driver at Ferrari. Only 2008 opened the door for Massa to lead the team – when Raikkonen appeared distracted – to a bitter title fight against McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton eventually going the way to Hamilton despite Massa’s efforts.

The following season Massa sustained a life threatening head injury as he was struck on the visor by a stray spring whilst following a car. The injury left Massa critical before making a gentle return to F1 the following season.

On his return in 2010 Massa found himself once again playing the second driver role to new team mate Fernando Alonso. The situation was made clear as soon as the 11th round at the German Grand Prix where Massa was ordered to hand his race win to Alonso to aid his title charge.

After several seasons of appearing to be being pushed out by Ferrari, Massa finally took hold of his own career and switched to the Williams Martini Racing team for their 2014 campaign.

A bad year for Felipe with many questioning his ability to race. With almost constant contact with McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and a powerful team-mate taking charge of Ferrari Felipe found himself playing the 2nd driver role too often.

2012 Scuderia Ferrari - 7th
Felipe struggled at the start of the season with a total lack of speed. When compared to his flying team-mate Fernando Alonso it looked like a certain deal that Felipe would be replaced with speculation around a desperate mid season transfer. By the last races of the season when Felipe's contract was looking at it's most insecure he managed to turn his season around with some stellar performances.

Massa's Career Low

There are two very striking low points for Massa.

Qualifying, Hugarian GP 2009

Felipe sustained life threatening injuries at the Hungaroring in 2009 when he was hit on the head by a stray suspension spring.

Brazillian GP 2008

A gut wrenching blow in 2008 after finishing the race in first place he was told to have done enough to take the title. He celebrated with his home crowd for half a lap before being told the calculation was wrong and the title went to McLaren's Lewis Hamilton.
