Ferrari paid tribute to its outgoing Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa by dedicating its season-ending World Finals to the Brazilian on Sunday. Massa, who has won 11 grands prix and was the 2008 world championship runner-up during an eight-year stint with the Scuderia, is leaving the team to make room for former team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.

A crowd of 15,000 people turned up to the Maranello squad's home track of Mugello for the event, which also featured a number of F1 demonstration runs. Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo was also in attendance, and praised Massa - making his final official appearance for the team outside of the remaining two grands prix - as "a true Ferrari man"

"We spent some great times together,while some others were more difficult, such as the accident in Budapest. These have been very busy years and I wanted to thank him publicly. It's time for a change and also to find new motivation. Felipe has been a true Ferrari man and he will always be part of our history. I wish him every success, starting with the last two races of this championship. He will always be part of our family."
