Felipe Massa looks back on his career with a good feeling. In an interview with Roksana Ćwik he talks about his career highlights and, among other things, names the best race of his Formula 1 career.

The former Formula 1 driver drove for Ferrari between 2006 and 2013 and enjoyed several successes with the team. One of his highlights took place early in that period, namely in his first year when he won the race weekend in his home country.

"I think the first one in Brazil because winning at home is different, you know. Especially in the place I grew up, in Interlagos," Massa pointed to his best race. "Also, I managed to win the second time in 2008, fighting for the championship. So, in the end, yeah, that was the most incredible moment of my career."

Massa's achievements in F1

Whereas Kimi Raikkonen took the world title in 2007, Massa never managed to take the season's top prize. His second-place finish in 2008 was his highest position in the world championship. That year, he briefly thought himself world champion, but Lewis Hamilton threw a spanner in the works.
