    While I never actively supported him, I’ll always have fond memories of his strengths. Although it was Lewis Hamilton who drew me into watching F1 in 2008, it was watching Massa battle with him throughout that season which really turned me into an F1 fan (2008 was awesome, despite all that’s said about overly complex aerodynamics and durable Bridgestones).

    At the end of 2008, I really believed Hamilton would be a multi-champion, and that Felipe’s WDC would be happening in the near future. Obviously, you all know how correct my beliefs were…

    I’ve been watching F1 since the late-90’s. For much of my childhood I was a huge Schumacher and Ferrari fan, so when Schumi decided to retire at the end of 2006, naturally I started supporting his team-mate at the time, Felipe Massa, and I’ve been a huge fan ever since.

    Felipe holds a personal record in being the driver to have made me cry the most. Once in 2008, after the Brazilian Grand Prix in which I basically shouted at the TV for 2 hours, with a brief period of wild cheering, followed by bitter disappointment and tears.

    I then cried again after hearing of Felipe’s Hungarian qualifying crash in 2009. As I was away camping I only heard about the crash through a text from my Dad saying that he’d been in a very serious incident and had “life-threatening” injuries.

    I have many fond memories of Felipe and Ferrari. His first win in Turkey ’06, his very dignified championship loss in 2008, bouncing back from his crash to out-qualify Alonso in Bahrain 2010, and many many more.

    Whilst I am a Ferrari man at heart, I will continue to follow Felipe as he embarks on a new career at Williams
