Special suit and helmet for Massa in Brazil


Felipe Massa will compete in his final Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday wearing a special race suit and helmet, decked out in the colours of his country’s flag.

The Brazilian, who has won his home grand prix on two occasions including in 2008 when he missed out on the World title by a single point, will line up 13th on the Interlagos grid.

But while his qualifying may not have been an epic performance, Massa is hoping for a better showing in Sunday’s 71-lap race.

Ahead of the grand prix, the Williams driver, who is retiring from F1 at the end of this season, revealed a special Brazil-themed race suit on Instagram.

He will also be running a new helmet…
