Felipe Massa has been appointed as the new head of the FIA Karting Commission following his retirement from Formula 1.
The Brazilian officially retired after the season finale in Abu Dhabi but was soon linked with a role within the FIA organisation as he still had a hunger and a passion for motorsport.
Massa came up through the karting ranks before graduating to single-seaters. Felipe organizes the ‘Challenge of the Stars’ kart race each year, a charity race contested by F1, FE, DTM and GP2/F2 drivers. Massa is uniquely qualified for the post of King of Karting.
