Williams have also put a special ‘Obrigado Massa’ (‘thank you Massa’) livery on their car. This weekend is Felipe Massa’s penultimate grand prix and final race on home ground.

  1. The Whiting/Vettel handshake would make for a brilliant Caption Competition @keithcollantine :D

    1. @ninjenius – even if not in a caption competition, let me take a stab…

      “I didn’t wash after coming from the men’s room”

      Fun thing is it could apply to either of them!

  2. Isn’t “Obrigado” more of a ‘thanks’ than a ‘farewell’?
    I know it’s his home race, but saying ‘farewell’ (or ‘thanks’) with one more race after this seems a bit odd to me.

    1. @gumbidave Thanks for that, I’ve changed it.

    Hmm, Felipe Massa has been named Valtteri Bottas in one of the pictures. That seems to have happened a few times this year :D

  4. Obrigado Massa means Thank you Massa, not farewell

  5. How many GP’s have you won? “A Brazillion”
