Ferrari racer Felipe Massa has revealed an odd superstition that he says could contribute to his success at F1 races.
Spain’s Marca newspaper revealed that the 25-year-old Brazilian credits not changing his underpants for three days for aiding his home win at Interlagos earlier this month.
“If my weekend begins well,” Massa confessed, “I use the same underpants on Saturday. If that is also a good day, I wear them on Sunday.
“That is what I did in Brazil.”
Massa also revealed that he will always regard 2006 teammate Michael Schumacher as akin to a ‘university professor’.
“I learned an awful lot from him,” Felipe said of the retiring champion.
“I am certain that I will phone him for advice many times next year.”
