Ex-Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa has revealed he is talking to several FIA Formula E teams about a possible move into the all-electric series for season five. 

Massa, who took 11 wins across his 15-year F1 career, retired from the sport for the second time at the end of the 2017 season. The 36-year-old has been evaluating which series to pursue for the next stage of his career and recently contested the opening round of the 2018 Brazilian Stock Car Championship at Interlagos. 

The Brazilian has previously expressed his interest in a possible switch into Formula E and has been linked with Jaguar after conducting a one-day test with the British manufacturer in early 2017. 

Speaking as a guest at Formula E’s inaugural Rome E-Prix last weekend, Massa said: “I think it can be a nice pleasure to be here racing, I cannot stay at home for very long so I need to find something to do. 

“Formula E is a championship that is showing some good possibilities so I still have nothing really real. But I’m talking to some teams so let’s see if it’s possible to race here in the future.”

Massa has made it clear about wanting to contest a full-time campaign he feels he could be competitive in from the off, so is unlikely to join Formula E mid-season.
