Felipe Massa

Latin spirit

Felipe Massa
Born: 25/4/81
Nationality: Brazilian
First GP: Australia 2002
Wins: 11
2007 position: 4th
Previous teams: Sauber

Felipe Massa continues to defy expectations and emerged as a truly world-class contender this year.

Always quick, the Brazilian has been let down in the past by inconsistency and a tendency to make mistakes.

But while this year he has won where he has been traditionally strong - such as in Bahrain - he has also been quick on his old bogey tracks such as Monaco.

He remained a constant presence in the title battle to the end and is regarded as the most improved driver in F1.
