Felipe Massa will mark the end of his Formula 1 career at this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, along with celebrating his 250th Grand Prix.

The Williams Martini Racing driver had an emotional Brazilian Grand Prix, as he retired from his last home race. He left the Grand Prix lost for words after a great outpouring of emotion. As he walked back to the pits, he carried the Brazilian flag proudly in front of the fans.

For Massa, the Grand Prix at the Yas Marina Circuit will be an emotional one and admits there will be a big party afterwards to hopefully celebrate a great result.

“It’s going to be another emotional one!” said Massa. “You try not think about it too much when you’re in the car, you just try to do as good a job as you can.

“It’s a really nice track to drive, there are lots of fans who really enjoy themselves at the track and outside of the track and it is, of course, a twilight race which is interesting for us and everyone watching.

“I really hope the final, and 250th race of my Formula One career, can be a fantastic one. We will of course have a big party! Hopefully we can celebrate with a great result.”
