Massa to attend São Paulo E-Prix despite lawsuit against FIA

Ex-Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa will attend this weekend’s São Paulo E-Prix, despite it being confirmed on Monday that he’s filed a lawsuit against the FIA, Formula One Management (FOM) and ex-F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone.

São Paulo will host the fourth round of Formula E Season 10 this Saturday, a venue which made its debut on the calendar last year.

Massa is also an ex-Formula E driver, having competed in the fifth and sixth seasons of the all-electric series for Venturi. The ex-F1 driver is suing the mentioned parties over the ‘crashgate’ scandal, which took place at the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix.

The former Ferrari driver isn’t the only ex-Brazilian F1 driver to be in attendance this Saturday, as two-time World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi and Rubens Barrichello will also be making an appearance.

However, the spotlight will firmly be on Massa, unsurprisingly, as a result of his recently confirmed lawsuit.
