Felipe Massa (born 25 April 1981 in São Paulo, Brazil), is a Brazilian racing driver who will compete in the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship with Venturi Racing.[1] A former runner-up in the FIA Formula One World Championship, Massa arrived in FE determined to make an impact, having helped developed Venturi's season five challenger prior to his debut.[1]

Massa made his FE debut at the start of the 2018/19 season with Venturi, although it would be some time before his former talents came to the fore.[1] His best result came at his adopted home race in Monte Carlo, claiming his maiden podium finish, en-route to fifteenth in the Championship.[2]

A well known advocate of electric racing, Massa also serves as President of the FIA International Karting Commission, promoting electric kart racing.[3]


Formula E History

Massa would get his first taste of the FIA Formula E Championship during the 2017/18, testing for Venturi.[1] This resulted in Massa securing a full race seat for the 2018/19 season, with the Brazilian signing a three year deal with the team.[1] He would be joined by Edoardo Mortara for his maiden FE season, with both having helped developed Venturi's season five contender, the Venturi VFE 05.[4] He duly out-performed Mortara at the 2018 Valencia Test, although the Swiss racer had the advantage in terms of race pace.[5]

Venturi Virgin

Massa's debut came at the 2018/19 season opener in Ad Diriyah, with the Brazilian racer running at the back of the field throughout.[6] A similar performance followed in Marrakech, before the Brazilian was forced to retire due to damage at the Santiago E-Prix.[7] Indeed, it was only at the 2019 Mexico City E-Prix that Massa finally claimed his maiden points finish, putting together a cool drive to eighth as chaos erupted around him.[8]

Massa's form continued to improve in Hong Kong, although his battling run to fifth was overshadowed by the exploits of teammate Mortara, who was eventually awarded the race win.[9] Another points finish followed in Sanya, before the Brazilian was forced to retire in Rome E-Prix with a driveshaft failure.[10] He would, however, bounce back at the 2019 Paris E-Prix, once again fighting for points, having got into Super Pole for the first time.[11]

However, Massa's best weekend of the season would be at the 2019 Monaco E-Prix, with the Brazilian again getting into Super Pole.[2] From there Massa would entertain hopes of a maiden victory, although with overtaking as difficult on the shortened version of the Circuit de Monaco as it was on the full circuit, the Brazilian had to settle for third.[2] Unfortunately Massa's form took another dip at the following race in Berlin, with the Brazilian failing to score.[12]

Indeed, Massa would only claim one more points finish over the following three rounds, securing eighth at the 2019 Bern E-Prix.[13] His result there could have been better had he been able to retain the gains he had made at the start, when an accident at the first chicane had blocked the circuit.[13] Massa had been one of a few drivers to slip through a gap in the barriers and rejoin ahead of the accident, leaping into eighth from eighteenth, and was hence hugely frustrated when the order was reset after the race was red flagged.[13]

Come the end of the season Massa had scored 36 points and fifteenth in the Championship, one place behind his teammate Mortara.[14]

Brazilian Bounty?

Massa would continue with the Venturi squad for the 2019/20 season, with teammate Mortara likewise retained for the full campaign.[15]
