Felipe Massa’s farewell in Brazil was a fantastic F1 moment

Sport can be beautiful sometimes. Felipe Massa’s final race in front of his passionate Brazilian fans was always going to be emotional but it went up a level when he crashed out in Sao Paulo. As the fans gave Massa a standing ovation, he draped himself in a Brazilian flag, walked back to the pits in tears (hugging marshals along the way who were also crying) and was greeted by mechanics from several different teams who came out to applaud him. Felipe eventually finished in the arms of his family, in the middle of pitlane whilst the race was going on around them, and it was fantastic.
