    To be honest I was never a big fan of Felipe Massa, though really enjoyed this open and seemingly from the heart interview. Such an upswing after having listened to the Jean Todt one recently.
    He sounds like an honest guy who survived the cut throat jungle of F1.
    Is there a podcast with Bernie E.? One red thread throughout many podcasts is Bernie’s hand being behind many deals, ideas, driver hirings etc... hats off to him as well

    There is only one reason motor racing people gravitate to Monaco. Just one. They don't pay any tax. That's it. Full stop. In all other respects Monaco is a cultureless, ugly town with dismal architecture, full of shallow, plastic people who know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

    It's so nice to hear Felipe's voice again after a year.

    Massa seems really bitter towards Kimi. Maybe he did not a have a great car in 2002, but Kimi was also finishing in 7th place more than once during his season at Sauber. In terms of raw speed he was a lot better.
    And he got the facts wrong with 2007. Before the race in Monza despite having better reliability than Kimi, Massa was only one point ahead in the standings, and the team didn't let Kimi attack for the lead in the closing stages of the Turkey race. He wasn't that good and like Webber, he can't accept that he lost the only chance he had of winning the championship. He is right though about Alonso's toxic character.

      He beat Kimi in 2008 and came a lot closer to the title than Webber.

    Another great interview.
    Please don’t ever video them, it will distract the subject.
    My shout for the next interview, Keke.

    Schumacher had a bigger gap over Massa than Alonso had over him, so Schumacher is the best.

    Tom - These interviews are superb - consistently great questions and you keep your mouth shut while they answer them. A simple and blindingly obvious format, but seldom done ! Most interviews over a Grand Prix weekend are a car crash!

    Karma is a bitch. Felipe snatched the title from Lewis in 2007 by handing Kimi victory in Brazil only to have his heart ripped out the following year in the most cruel fashion - last lap and last corner.

    Started watching F1 in 2007 and always supported Felipe. Even in his later years when he was not in a competent car I always looked for where he finished. Now I only watch highlights of the race and if I am free I watch the whole race

    He won 11 races in the span of 3 years; 2006-2008. To me that is astounding. 2008 and that crash in 2009 really changed his life

    Felipe Massa!
    What can I say, as a Tifosi he is one of my favorite drivers.
    He is probably number one with the fans, and top 3 in awesome personality.
    Love you Felipe, all the best to you, your family, your career, your health, everything :)

    Annoying to hear Felipe blame the hiring of Sirotkin for Williams' woes last season, I really don't see how either driver could have done much better in a POS car; what's more, how are Russell and Kubica doing any better when the car is even worse this season? Impossible to judge from the outside.
    Also "I don't understand politics", maybe that explains why he supports Bolsanaro, and why he was so happy to be the poster boy for the Formula E race in Saudi Arabia. Felipe is a very quick driver on his day, but he does talk a lot of bollocks sometimes.

      Completely new aero concept and 2 young drivers in 2018 for Williams... nobody to give engineers the correct feedback to improve the car no wonder they are where they are... sometimes talent is needed where money can't help

    Rubens Barrichello could be a good one to do, with his double team orders episodes in Austria, his enormous accident at Imola, taking Jordan's first pole position, and his amazing maiden win in Hockenheim from 18th on the grid.

      Same. Highly talented, extremely underrated and unlucky (he NEVER won the Brazilian GP).
      Also, I think that the 2000 German GP was the best German GP ever (old Hockenheim, V10 cars, no assists, Rubens' charge through the field, man on the track, rain and lastly an inspired decision to continue on slicks in the rain).

  • LensLoelsberg
    LensLoelsberg Před 4 měsíci +2

    57:10 I disagree with him. Of course Stroll and Sirotkin weren't the best drivers but as we see now the situation at Williams isn't better it's even worse and now they have George Russell in the team (GP3, F2 champion, Mercedes development driver) and Kubica. Both great drivers. With these modern F1 cars its at least 95% about the car and only 5% about the driver. You have to blame the internal situation at Williams for their weak results not the drivers.

    • DerLuke
      DerLuke Před 4 měsíci +2

      @LensLoelsberg well massa outqualified stroll 17:2 and retired from many point positions such as baku, Canada, Sotchi or Barcelona. Take a look at 2017 and you will see that The championship standing tells nothing about the true story.

    • LensLoelsberg
      LensLoelsberg Před 4 měsíci

      @DerLuke Lance had 40 points and Massa 43. Stroll showed the potential of the car just as well as Massa

    • DerLuke
      DerLuke Před 4 měsíci +1

      Well in 2017 massa was so much better than lance stroll and showed the potential of the car they had. If they just have had Lance we would have thought that the 2017 car was bad as well

    Felipe has finally confirmed what every honest f1 fan already knew. That when he returned after injury the team was 100% completely biased towards Alonso and he never stood a chance as it wasn't a fair fight at all. (Rob Smedley actually confirmed this a couple of years back in a BBC podcast as well). Its the same for nearly all of Alonso's teammates. He uses backroom politics to manipulate his way into sabotaging his teammates careers at every turn and does absolutely everything in his power to make sure the car and team is built only around him.
    Thank you Felipe for telling is the truth. Alonso tried this shit at McLaren in 2007 with his attempted blackmail of Ron Dennis when Hamilton was too strong for him and it backfired massively. Its the reason that no top team wants Alonso now and the way his career has turned out is karma for all the years of making sure his teammates aren't allowed to compete with him freely. He is absolutely to terrified of competition in the same team. Its pathetic and a massive stain on his legacy.

      Ewok FromEndor nope. But Steve Ryder did conduct an interview with him for Sky’s legends programme.
      A very similar format to BTG but heavily edited due to it being a video instead of audio only.
