I think Williams took a bad decision. I hope the seat goes to Wehrlein.

Good decision both from Williams and Felipe.
Massa's job was apreciated but it's time to move on.

So something has progressed behind the scenes. Until a few days ago Massa was saying he's happy to continue and it's all up to Williams. Interesting

My opinion he just didn't won't to wait and be backup while Williams evaluate Kubica post Interlagos and see what happens with that,and Williams ultimately has other alternatives.

Basically i'm tired of Massa. He's like Barichello who hung around far too long and was an embarrassment to allin the end. Just go Massa, thanks for the effort but time to move on.

He did good to hisself with publishing retirement before being left in air till Abu Dhabi.
I just hope we won't see the same story of last year in Brazil.jokes are already made about it.
Btw, One step closer to Kubica.

I think he wants to enjoy Brazil knowing where he will stand - he must know in his heart that he's not number one choice and looking unlikely to be so he's gone. Fair play to him.

2016 he wasn't great and his time was up, but this year I don't think you could have asked more from him, he's been solid and as usual with Massa a bit unlucky.

He did not retire you goose. He was told by williams they have found somebody else. He announced like a retirement, but he surely wants to go on. He does not have a choice in this matter.

Well this year he won't get a FW40 from Williams as a retirement gift, there are parts that will go for next years car and he already took an FW38. Maybe a miniature fw40 as a goodbye gift.

Finally! Probably Williams offered him a new contract with a huge paycut but thankfully he only cares about money so he didn't accept.

Suggests to me we have made our driver decision and contracts are signed. Let Felipe announce his retirement and take a lot of news coverage. Pause a week then announce new driver and get even more coverage.

For me we are going with Kubica with one of wehrlein or Krystal as reserve driver and di rests is out.

That's my bet too.

Although Massa is a decent driver but he never was my favorite. I will thank him for the dedication and attachment he showed to our team, but at the same time to end this relationship. Now bring a solid driver, ideally Robert
