Massa hits the streets - Felipe spins the wheels in Rio street demo

Published by Christine

A couple of videos from Felipe Massa's recent visit to Rio, with Pedro de la Rosa, before jetting off to start the season in Australia. According to the Ferrari website, Massa's getting all misty-eyed already!

It was really emotional to drive along the streets of Rio at such a special event in front of people who usually only get to see me at the end of the season at the Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo. The emotion I felt and all the support I could sense around me will be an extra motivation to begin the season well! At the end of the straight there was a very fast bend that allowed me to go flat out and get close to 300kmh. But halfway along that straight I could see the flash of the radar cameras: if we consider the fact that I was going about 12 times too fast, I fear I might be getting a rather hefty fine…

The event was held on a specially constructed track, which Massa was quick to spin round on, burning up his tyres. He was driving the F10 from the 2010 season.
