Felipe Massa Career

Felipe Massa worked with 1999 International Formula 3000 champion Nick Heidfeld during his rookie season in Formula 1. He showed he was a competitive driver but made several errors, including various off-track tours. Massa scored four championship points in his debut season, with a best finish of fifth at the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya. After receiving a 10-place grid penalty for an incident at the Italian Grand Prix, he was replaced by Heinz-Harald Frentzen for the United States Grand Prix in an attempt to avoid the penalty. Massa returned to driving for the Japanese Grand Prix, but Sauber announced that Frentzen would team up with Heidfeld in 2003, leaving Massa without a race seat. Instead, he spent a year with Sauber’s engine supplier, Ferrari, testing for the championship-winning team to acquire experience.

Felipe Massa Biography

Sauber re-signed Massa for the 2004 season. In 2004, he was responsible for 12 of Sauber’s 34 points, with a highest finish of fourth at the Belgian Grand Prix. Giancarlo Fisichella tallied the remaining 22 points for his team. In 2005, Massa remained with Sauber. Despite scoring only 11 points, he outpaced colleague Jacques Villeneuve for most of the season and won the Drivers’ Championship. Massa disclosed in an August 2022 interview that after BMW acquired Sauber, the team offered him a three-year contract. However, Ferrari exercised their option on him to replace Rubens Barrichello, who had signed with Honda for the 2006 season. Massa was later released, replaced by his former teammate Heidfeld, and hired by Ferrari to drive alongside Michael Schumacher.

Massa qualified second for the opening race in Bahrain and finished fifth in Malaysia, defeating a friend Michael Schumacher, who had started fourteenth. Massa spun in Bahrain on both Saturday practice and race day, narrowly missing Fernando Alonso, the eventual race victor. At the Australian Grand Prix, he damaged his Ferrari during qualifying and then collided with Christian Klien and Nico Rosberg on the race’s first turn. However, he achieved his first podium position at the Nürburgring, placing third behind Michael Schumacher and Alonso. In 2006, he also recorded the quickest lap at Barcelona. In 2006 he added four more podium finishes, winning his first Formula One pole position and race at the Turkish Grand Prix at the Istanbul Park circuit.
