Felipe Massa confirms F1 retirement

Felipe Massa has confirmed he will retire from Formula 1 at the end of the season.

The Williams driver first retired a year ago only to return to the team when Valtteri Bottas left to join Mercedes as a replacement for retiring F1 world champion Nico Rosberg.

But with Williams lining up replacements for the veteran for 2018, Massa’s final F1 races will be his home race in Brazil next week and the season finale at Interlagos.

Robert Kubica and Paul di Resta are the favourites to replace Massa although Mercedes, who supply Williams with engines, are keen on placing Pascal Wehrlein alongside Lance Stroll next season.
