A tale of a hundred Grands Prix
Interlagos, 26 November – When it is the moment to celebrate a special event, it is nice to be given presents and to share the moment with one’s nearest and dearest. That’s exactly what happened today for Felipe Massa, who has been part of the Ferrari family in Formula 1 for ten years and for whom tomorrow’s Brazilian Grand Prix will be his one hundredth F1 race at the wheel of a Prancing Horse car. For this double celebration there was quite a gathering for the obligatory cake cutting ceremony, including his family, his closest friends and the entire team, who presented him with a piece of bodywork off the 150° Italia covered in everyone’s autographs. Alongside Felipe for this unforgettable moment captured by the photographers was team-mate Fernando Alonso and Team Principal Stefano Domenicali, as well as old friends and colleagues including Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, and Peter Sauber the team boss who gave Felipe his first Formula 1 drive.
