Felipe Massa retiring from Formula One, again

Felipe Massa retiring from Formula One, again”

"What he has shown, with the number of grands prix he has contested and the records he has already broken, is impressive", Massa told the Sportv programme Bem Amigos.

"I said I wanted to know by the Brazilian grand prix".

His departure ends an unbroken line of Brazilian drivers stretching back almost four decades and comes at a time when Interlagos, which has a contract to host the race to 2020, is up for sale.

Newly-crowned four-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton was presented with a replica of his vehicle painted by Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra at an event held by sponsor Petronas, F1i reports. He hasn't won since, and his retirement from Williams means that next season Brazil will be without a Formula One driver for the first time since 1969.

"I think it's definitely important to change a little bit some ideas for the auto but I think that's the way Williams is doing for next year".

Brazil has produced three world champions - Emerson Fittipaldi, Nelson Piquet and the late Ayrton Senna - who won eight titles between them.

Over the last four years, he has helped the team secure third place in the Constructors' Championship in 2014 and 2015, and fifth place in 2016.

Sunday will be his last home appearance and penultimate grand prix of his career.

"I'm really looking forward to another fantastic feeling to race at home and really enjoying the track that I grew up (on)".

Massa said: "The way we started the season, it was not the same way we finished the season. He is undoubtedly one of the best drivers in formula one history", he said, referring to Hamilton.
