New competitor’s debut at Felipe Massa’s annual karting event



The 2012 season of F1 has become a matter almost “banned” category for the pilots vying for the International Challenge of Stars, go-kart race held this weekend in Florianopolis.

Rubens Barrichello, Adrian Sutil, Jerome D ‘Ambrosio and organizer of the race, Felipe Massa tried to change the subject when asked about anything alluding to F1. The topic has been avoided, even Florianopolis receiving this year’s record number of participants in the competition category of karting, ten pilots, representing one third of the grid that participates in the Challenge.

Felipe Massa stressed that in all five editions, only F1 drivers have become champions. Asked about the Formula 1 season and the outlook for next year at Ferrari, he was quick: “Let’s talk about kart?” He said, good-humored.

One of the most sought after by the press due to the still uncertain future in Formula 1, Rubens Barrichello also has dodged the issue. “I’m enjoying the kart,” he said.

A similar stance was Adrian Sutil. Current pilot Force India and named as a possible replacement for Barrichello at Williams himself, the German also avoided talking about the future. “I’m playing the race kart and do not know about the next day,” he said. “Today I want to run and win.”
