Felipe Massa has started legal proceedings seeking to overturn Lewis Hamilton’s 2008 world championship triumph. Massa’s family were celebrating the championship in the Ferrari garage at the time. Now Massa, 42, is challenging the championship outcome by launching legal proceedings against the FIA, Formula One Management and former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone. Massa’s lawyers claim: ‘Mr Massa would have won the drivers’ championship that year. Mr Massa also seeks damages for the significant financial loss he has suffered due to the FIA’s failure, in which Mr Ecclestone and FOM were also complicit. Massa’s fight is primarily based on a press interview last year with Ecclestone, in which the now 93-year-old said he was aware at the time of how the race was skewed.
