Felipe Massa has announced this will be his final year in Formula One, having chosen to retire from the sport at the end of the season.
The Brazilian made his debut with Sauber back in 2002 and had a long spell with Ferrari where he achieved 11 race victories, also coming desperately close to the world championship in the dramatic 2008 season finale, where Massa missed out on the title by a single point.
Now with Williams, Massa has decided it’s time to call it quits after 14 years in Formula One. He shared a post on his Facebook page announcing his retirement and thanking fans for the support he’s received during his career.
The news adds weight to the rumours that Jenson Button will return to the Williams team next season, for who he made his debut with back in 2000.
