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.

Published hours before his team became one of only two to enter next year’s world championship, Brad Spurgeon’s interview with the F1 veteran is a touching portrait of a man who lives and breathes racing.
In the ongoing saga of the kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) introduction to F1, some teams are beginning to wonder openly if the devices will be ready for competition in the 2009 Formula One season.
