F1 needs Verstappen to win 2021 title says Massa

Felipe Massa admits he is cheering for Max Verstappen to win the 2021 world championship. In 2008, in one of the most thrilling ends to a title battle in Formula 1 history, Massa came tantalisingly close to preventing Lewis Hamilton from winning his first championship. He thinks Verstappen, 24, is finally ready to win his first title – and Massa thinks his own native Brazil is fully supportive of that. “The fact that his girlfriend is from Brazil helps him,” Massa smiled. “In his first three years in F1, Max made a lot of stupid mistakes. “But to me it’s actually simple – Verstappen deserves the title this year,” Massa said.
