Felipe Massa, beloved fan-favourite, former Ferrari driver, ex F1 racer, and short-lived 2008 F1 World Champion is making his return to racing in the FIA Formula E series on December 15, 2018.
Massa will have some familiar faces in the paddock, as Claire Williams (Massa’s boss at Williams) is the team principal at Venturi Racing, Massa’s new Formula E team.
In advance of the new season, Formula E has released a promotional video of Massa versus a peregrine falcon!
This isn’t the first time Formula E has come up with a crazy publicity stunt like this. Season 5 Formula E champion Jean-Eric Vergne raced his Techeetah Spark-Renault Z.E. 17 against an actual cheetah (world fastest land animal) in 2017.
