Early Career

Born 25 April 1981, Massa started his career in karting at age eight competing in national and regional championships for 7 years.

In 1998 he raced in Formula Chevrolet, finishing fifth place in the Brazilian championship. The following season he won 3 of the 10 races to claim the championship.

He moved to Europe to compete in the Italian Formula Renault series in 200. He won both the Italian and the European Formula Renault championships that same year.

Faced with a choice between Formula Three and Euro Formula 3000 he chose Euro Formula 3000. This may have been fortuitous as he won 6 of the 8 races and the championship which led to an offer of a Formula 1 test with the Sauber team, who signed him for 2002.

Formula 1

Massa started his Formula 1 career with Sauber in 2002. Between 2002 and 2006 he flitted to Ferrari, back to Sauber then back to Ferrari again.

In 2006 he won two races for Ferrari including his home Grand Prix in Brazil. He was the first Brazilian since Ayrton Senna to win the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Massa won three races in 2007 finishing 4th. In the 2008 Drivers’ World Championship he finished second after a long battle with Lewis Hamilton.

Massa was injured in the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix in an accident caused by a suspension spring off the Brawn GP car of Rubens Barrichello.

Massa missed the rest of that season but returned in 2010.

Consistently scoring points but missing out on podium placements until very recently (in Japan and Brazil) Massa is under contract to race for Scuderia Ferrari until the end of the 2013 season.
