A lot has changed since Felipe Massa (@massafelipe19) was 8 years old, racing go-karts in his home country of Brazil, but his love for driving remains the same. “I can’t see myself doing anything else in my life,” says Felipe.

With more than 250 Grand Prix entries and 41 podiums under his belt, Felipe is in his 15th Formula 1 (@f1) season. He’s racing in this year’s Monaco Grand Prix, a course that winds through the narrow streets of the European city-state along the French Riviera. “The glamour of Monaco is amazing,” says Felipe. “And for the drivers, it’s really challenging. The walls are so close and it’s so easy to make a mistake. You have to be more focused and aware than in other races.”
