Felipe Massa: Never Take The Easy Road

People

Massa in Formula E

Felipe Massa knows a thing or two about rising above adversity.

He lost the 2008 F1 drivers’ championship to Lewis Hamilton by a single point; a year later, he was severely injured by a piece of flying debris in a horrific freak incident.

In 2016, the much-loved Brazilian racing driver retired from F1, only to be hustled back into a seat at the last minute for the 2017 season.

In a world inhabited by playboys with rich parents and which rewards a certain ruthlessness, Massa has always been seen as the gentleman scrapper, the quietly spoken and shy man who made it to the very top without letting it change him.
