"Leclerc is a future F1 champion ... and before Verstappen"

Felipe Massa begins in less than two weeks his second season in Formula E with Venturi, but is still very aware of what happens in the 'Grand Circus'.

Felipe Massa was an F1 world champion for five seconds in 2008, which it took to know that Lewis Hamilton had advanced to Timo Glock in the last lap of the Brazilian GP that closed the championship. The paulista, now a Venturi driver in Formula E, will start his second season in the FIA electric competition in less than two weeks in Saudi Arabia, but before he has talked about F1 with 'motorsport.com' where he has made it clear who he is the driver for him with more future: "Leclerc is a future F1 world champion and I think we won't have to wait long. I don't rule out even before Verstappen."

Praise of the Ferrari and Williams expilot who reasons like this: "He is a very talented guy, but what surprises me most is his head and his ability to manage the pressure. I don't know if he is faster or slower than Verstappen, but the seven Poles in their first year with Ferrari say a lot. He made some mistakes, but I think we should all take into account his short experience in F1 and that it is his first year in a top team ".

Praise at the wheel of the car and also when getting off it. "You have to be prepared in many ways for life in Ferrari. You must learn to manage the pressure of the media, the fans and the one you wear yourself when you realize that you are driving for Ferrari. It is not a simple thing, and Charles has handled this perfectly. He's a good boy and he's smarter than he looks, "Massa finished.
