  1. Nice gesture from Rubinho to his friend!

  2. Lovely gesture from a collegue and close friend and a message which speaks for most people. Great how Massa seems be continuously improving when at one point it looked so bad for him. Really missing Felipe

  3. Great gesture of a nice person!

  4. I wonder how guilty Barrichello feels for losing that spring. I hope he knows it’s not really his fault, but it must feel horrible knowing that a part of your car almost killed someone.

  5. I wonder how guilty Barrichello feels for losing that spring

    Read an interview with Massa and said Rubens didn’t blame himself and it was just a freak accident and that his feelings only of concern for his friend rather than guilt which I hope is true:)

  6. Do you think he expected it to show up on his on-board cam?

  7. Notice the whole top of the helmet is identical to Felipe’s. Nice touch.

  8. Do you think he expected it to show up on his on-board cam?

    Maybe then if Felipe’s watching nice message for him

  9. Thank you to Rubens for this lovely tribute to Felipe. Both guys are loved in Formula One, both so honest and genuine, unlike some people (cough cough Hamilton) lol and I am British by the way!

    Forza Felipe well on the mend, come back as soon as you can…and congrats Rubens on the win today x
