Wil­liams has al­lowed Felipe Massa to keep the re­tire­ment gift of his F1 chas­sis from Brazil, de­spite him not ac­tu­ally be­ing in re­tire­ment for a sin­gle of­fi­cial ses­sion. Massa has been drafted back in to drive for Wil­liams this year af­ter Valt­teri Bot­tas moved to Mercedes. Massa said his emo­tional farewells in Brazil and Abu Dhabi, and was gifted with his Massa-branded car, which was re­paired af­ter his shunt at In­ter­la­gos. “It’s mine, it’s mine,” said Massa when asked if he had to give the car back. “It’s got my name on the side and it’s in the fac­tory. I never in­tended to re­tire fully from mo­tor­sport, but I feel ready for this come­back, even if I was sur­prised by it.”
