Felipe Massa struggled to control his emotions in the final minutes before his 14th and last ever Brazilian Grand Prix.

Massa also received a wonderful message from his son, Felipinho, after he crossed the finish line.

"The most frustrating thing is that I've been in Formula 1 for 10 years and every single year that has happened to somebody in the paddock, and it continues to happen", he said. "I was surprised that he got closer to me in the last few laps and that is why I locked up a few times at turn one as I was looking too much in the mirrors and not braking so heavy so locked a little bit".

"I'm really emotional today because of all of you guys", the Williams driver said in a special interview with fellow Brazilian Rubens Barrichello on the podium in Sao Paulo.

Speaking later to Sky Sports, Massa said: "It's so hard to explain my feelings today". The vehicle is showing great performance lately and I think that is coming from the chassis development.

"I had an incredible start".

In Warsaw 100 thousand people went on the March of nationalists
Many carried the national white-and-red flag as others set off flares and firecrackers, filling the air with red smoke. Poland was the only European Union country to vote against Mr Tusk's reelection as European Union president in March.

"The feeling that I had on the human side after the race last year - really, I never thought I would feel that, or I would have that in my career", the 36-year-old recalled on Thursday. I knew he had better pace than me. I knew that keeping him behind for 71 laps would be very hard, but I managed to do it.

Massa had already acknowledged that keeping his emotions in check would be hard in his last two races.

"It was a very hard race for me, for me it was like many victories I took".

Last year's race in Brazil saw Massa, in what was originally supposed to be his final home race, crash out at the half-way point before bidding farewell in a tear-filled walk down the pit lane.

"We are especially grateful that he agreed to postpone his retirement from F1 for a year, after Valtteri joined Mercedes, which demonstrated the depth of the relationship we built during our time together". Today I think I finished with a result like a victory, doing more than maybe what the vehicle was able to do.
