Massa to race with special helmet livery for final race with Ferrari
22 November, 2013
Felipe Massa’s helmet for the Brazilian Grand Prix, the last race of his time at Ferrari, is red and entirely given over to his history with the Prancing Horse.
“It’s my way of saying thank you to the Scuderia for all these years we have spent together and it’s also an expression of the great pride I feel at having raced for this team. My gratitude goes to everyone I have worked with, with whom I have been friends, with whom I have shared the good times…and the bad.”
The special edition helmet, bears all the significant numbers of the Brazilian’s time in red: one year as a test driver, eight as a race driver, 139 races, eleven wins, fifteen pole positions and fourteen fastest laps.
These are numbers the Brazilian hopes to add to on Sunday in his home race: “It would be the best way to end this wonderful story.”
