Felipe Massa backing Nico Rosberg to pip Lewis Hamilton to F1 world title
Nico Rosberg's challenge for a maiden world title has shown little sign of faltering in recent weeks, and he has now been backed to go all the way by the sport's ultimate nearly man.
Just as the German has for the past three seasons, Felipe Massa crossed swords with Lewis Hamilton for the world title in 2008.
The Brazilian won the final race of the season in front of his home fans at Interlagos.
But as his entourage celebrated wildly in the Ferrari garage, Hamilton passed Timo Glock for fifth place around the penultimate corner on the final lap to snatch the title by a point.
