Felipe Massa joins Williams

As predicted a few months back, Felipe Massa has joined Williams for the 2014 Formula One season.

The 32-year-old has signed a three -year contract after spending the previous eight seasons with Ferrari.

The Brazilian has won 11 races in his career and came close to winning the title back in 2008, when he lost out to Lewis Hamilton by just one point.

Massa will leave Ferrari at the end of the season

Massa is delighted that he has joined a team like Williams.

He said: “When I was a kid, I always dreamed of driving for Williams, Ferrari or McLaren and I’m glad to be signing with another icon of the sport.”

The Brazilian will replace Pastor Maldonado, who is currently expected to take Kimi Raikkonen’s old seat at Lotus.

It is understood that the Venezuelan has fallen out with the team due to their poor form this season.

Williams also confirmed that Valtteri Bottas will stay with the team next season to partner Massa.

Both drivers will be hoping that the team can return to the glory days of the 80s and 90s sooner rather then later after what has been a terrible 2013 season.
