Felipe Massa

Felipe Massa is a Brazilian ex-F1 driver who raced in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship between 2002 and 2017. He won 11 Grands Prix, claimed 16 pole positions and in 2008 he finished runner-up in the Drivers World Championship with Ferrari, agonisingly losing out on the title by a single point after winning the Brazilian Grand Prix. Massa was lucky to survive horrific injuries he sustained during qualifying for the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix, which sidelined him until 2010. After retiring from Formula 1, he raced in the FIA Formula E Championship for 2 seasons.
