Felipe Massa was rumored to have signed an agreement to race in Formula E team in 2017, but Nico Rosberg’s retirement, and Valtteri Bottas’ subsequent move from Williams to Mercedes, set in motion a revolving door which brought the Brazilian back to where he started.
Massa will still get the chance to test a machine form the full-electric series, and while the test is provided by Jaguar, its location is still unknown.
“Panasonic Jaguar Racing received a request from Formula E to give Felipe Massa the chance to experience a Formula E car,” the team said in statement released Friday.
“We are happy to provide this opportunity.”
With preparations for the 2017 Formula 1 season in full swing, it’s not knows why Massa has accepted the test beyond a simple case of satisfying one’s curiosity.
