In November of 2016, Williams Formula One driver Felipe Massa walked to pit lane with his home flag draped on his shoulders during a rainy Brazilian Grand Prix. He’d just wrecked out of his final home race, and cried as the crowd and other teams honored his retirement. He was back in an F1 car two months later.
Williams almost had to fork over a €10,000 fine for being three seconds late turning in a tire used in Free Practice 1 on Friday. Three seconds. Holy crap, man. I thought my friends laid on the guilt trip when I show up late to things, but this is a whole ‘nother level.

This weekend is Brazilian Formula One driver Felipe Massa’s last Brazilian Grand Prix after 248 races.

One of the longest-running drivers in Formula One announced his retirement today ahead of the Italian Grand Prix. Williams driver Felipe Massa will be moving on at the end of 2016. The 35-year-old won 11 Grands Prix in his career. The season finale at Abu Dhabi will be his 250th and final F1 race.
Four tires in 1.92 seconds is ludicrous even by Formula 1's madcap standards of speed.
After a spectacular start to the British Grand Prix, Felipe Massa’s Williams jumped ahead of the two Mercedes cars on the front row of the grid. The Williams cars were faster in a straight line than the Mercedes pair, and they were holding their own. Here’s how they blew it through a series of questionable calls.
Holy crap, there’s a race going on at the British Grand Prix! Felipe Massa nailed the start while the two Mercedes cars were slow off the line, allowing him to shoot out in front early.
Close passes are one thing. Threading your wheel in between the two wheels of another Formula One race car next to you resides on a whole different plane of ridiculousness.

Ooooooops! Not a McLaren yet buddy.
Felipe Massa criticised FIA Race Control for its decision to continue the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka, Mie before the crash by fellow driver Jules Bianchi.
Why do you always look so sad, Felipe? Is it because your car isn't fast enough? Or is Valtteri being mean to you again? Is he the one who made you dress up like a pirate? You know how eyeliner irritates your sensitive skin. Call us, Felipe, we're worried.
