the first race i watched in f1 was turkey 2006 and i saw massa win and from that moment i have supported him ever since. His win at brazil in 06 was also special.
in 07 i remember his battle with kubica at fuji 07 was fun to watch(saw an onboard few years after)and how good he was at istambull.
in 08 he was awsome in quali like his monaco lap. Standout memories were his double pass at canada, his start at hungary, his move on webber into t1 at fuji 08(just mising the wall) and his flawluss drive at brazil.(that race was the best ive watched because of the tention in the last laps)also him on the podium aswell.
in 09 his start at australis was awasome 6th to 3rd, his monaco overtake on vettel was cool,his 4th place at silverstone was good and he got on the podium in nurburgring was really good.
in 2010 he had a good start 2nd at bahrain 3rd at aus and beating alonzo again at malaysia but after anlonzos ruthless overtake into pitlane at china thats where it all went wrong for felipe and started the downward spiral and germany would have destroyed massa mentaly.
in 2011 only standout things were his starts and his last lap canada battle with kobayshi.
in 2012 terrible start but from monaco he kept improving getting qucker pulling some good overtakes such as schumi at silverstone,senna at singapore.his starts at japan,monza and brazil were highlights of the season. His podiums at japan 4th at austin and 3rd in brazil were also standout moments
2013 he has had pace all year but bad luck and broken car and other circumstances have ruined his season. But his start at silverstone 11th to 6th was start of the year(shame we didnt see an onboard)
bad moments: mistakes at malaysia,monaco,fuji,singapore in 08,hungary crash in 09, germany 2010, monaco,india 2011, australia 2012 and 2013 crash at monaco,montreal q,germany and being screwed by the team muliplle time to favour alonso like abu dhabi.
theese are my memories and im realy looking forward to next year at williams and i wil still support him.
jenson button because he only won 2009 because of the car in first half of season and barichello had bad luck and got screwed over in the second half especialy in brazil where hamilton gave him a puncture (not on purpose).
