With a professional motorsport career dating back to 1998, Felipe Massa is one of the most experienced drivers on the grid. After joining the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in 2018, the Brazilian once again partners Edoardo Mortara for his second all-electric campaign.
With 269 Grand Prix starts and 11 Formula One wins to his name, the Brazilian is one of the most experienced and decorated drivers on the grid. Massa earned much of his single-seater racing experience while driving for Sauber, Ferrari and Williams Formula One teams, before announcing his three-year signing with Venturi Formula E Team in 2018.
Born in Sao Paulo in 1981, Massa started his driving career at the age of six on a 50cc motorbike given to him by his father. By 1989, the young driver started to win championships behind the wheel of a kart, forming the foundations of a career in motorsport. Progressing through the ranks in single seaters, it wasn't long before the Brazilian found himself in Europe with the Formula Renault series, where he won both the Italian and the European Formula Renault championships in 2000.
Two years later, Massa signed with Sauber Formula One team, marking the beginning of his 15-year career in the series, going on to race for Ferrari and, more recently, Williams.
For the 2018/19 season, Massa was reunited with fellow former Williams development driver Susie Wolff in her debut season as Team Principal for Venturi. The Brazilian driver joined Edoardo Mortara with both drivers piloting the new Gen2 Venturi challenger.
Now embarking on his second campaign in the series, Massa once again partners with Mortara as they get behind the wheel of the new Mercedes-powered Venturi for the 2019/20 season.
