Massa saddened by Brazil F1 attacks

Williams driver Felipe Massa of Brazil attends a press conference ahead of Sunday's Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix at the Interlagos racetrack in Sao Paulo Brazil Thursday Nov. 9 2017

The Williams driver and veteran of 267 Grands Prix doesn't believe however that the latest incidents should encourage F1 to end its association with Brazil.

"He sent a very emotional message to his team as he left the pit lane for his final Brazilian Grand Prix", Sky Sports reporter Martin Brundle revealed just minutes before the race.

Alonso was frustrated in his race-long battle to pass Felipe Massa at Interlagos for seventh place, spending the entire race tucked up behind the Brazilian's Williams but unable to pass his Mercedes-powered rival due to the lack of straightline speed from McLaren's Honda engines.

Felipe Massa insisted on Thursday that his impending retirement from Formula One is for good, but he is dejected by Brazil's declining significance in the sport. "Today I finished the race like I wanted, that's why I did another year!"

"The most frustrating thing is that I've been in Formula 1 for 10 years and every single year that has happened to somebody in the paddock, and it continues to happen", he said.

His 7-year-old son Felipinho was the first to congratulate him after the race, which was won by Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari.

With Sao Paulo notorious for throwing unpredictable weather conditions during the race weekend, the two-time world champion says that rain would be beneficial for the McLaren team but a top ten result in the race will be the goal. On the 48th lap of the Brazilian Grand Prix past year he lost control of his Williams and crashed onto the entrance of the pit lane.

Massa now has 42 points and is 10th in the 2017 standings.

It's not the first time Massa has had an emotional send off at Interlagos.
