Felipe Massa pays tribute to his father with helmet livery

Felipe Massa: “Ever since I was little my father has always been a hero to me and if I’m here now, it’s down to him. Even though he only raced for fun, he gave me my passion for motor sport, as I always wanted to copy him. I am sure that he will be very pleased to see his colours back on track at a race which means a lot to me and my family.”
