Williams have signed Brazil’s Felipe Massa as one of their drivers for the 2014 Formula One season, the British team announced on Monday.
Massa, 32, joins from grid rivals Ferrari, for whom he has raced since the 2006 season, with Pastor Maldonado axed by Williams. “The Williams F1 Team is delighted to announce that Felipe Massa will join the team to drive alongside Valtteri Bottas for the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship season,” a team statement said. “The new line-up reflects Williams’ determination to bring success back to the team,” added the statement.
Massa’s Grand Prix future was called into question when Ferrari announced they had re-signed Kimi Raikkonen for next season.
In 12 seasons in Formula One, Massa has won 11 races and recorded 36 podium finishes.AFP
