I always gave my best - Massa

Felipe Massa insists that he is 'proud' to be part of Ferrari's history ahead of this weekend's Brazil Grand Prix, which marks the end of his eight-year stint with the Maranello team.

Massa joins Williams in 2014 after Ferrari opted to re-sign the driver who won its previous Drivers' Championship - Kimi Raikkonen.

"I'd like to be remembered as an important component of the Ferrari team," Massa revealed ahead of his home race at Interlagos this weekend.

We had great times together, winning races and championships and we also lived through some difficult moments. I am proud to be part of Ferrari's history.

"It was always my dream to drive for Ferrari and I did it for ten years, eight of them as a race driver. Actually, I had a contract with Ferrari even before then, when I was just a kid really. It's been a long time during which I always gave my all for the team.

"For my final race with them, I also need to say thanks to all the fans who have supported me throughout this time with Ferrari.

"They really feel part of the Ferrari world and the Ferrari family. With those fans I have celebrated many great moments and, on the other hand, when I was going through tough times, they gave me so much energy and support.

"It will be very emotional racing at Interlagos for Ferrari for the final time."
