Massa to retire, Magnussen to race
Felipe Massa has announced his retirement from formula one.
The news was revealed during a press conference organised by his current team, Williams, at Monza ahead of the Italian grand prix.
Brazilian Massa, 35, debuted for Sauber in 2002 and won 11 grands prix for Ferrari.
"Every team I have been a part of has been a special experience, and not only in formula one," he said on Thursday.
"It will be an emotional day when I finally conclude my F1 career with my 250th grand prix start in Abu Dhabi."
Meanwhile, Kevin Magnussen has been cleared to race this weekend at Monza, mere days after his huge crash at Spa's fabled Eau Rouge corner last Sunday.
