Retired Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa has been appointed a new role within the FIA, becoming the head of its Karting Commission. The Brazilian raced his last Grand Prix two weeks ago at Abu Dhabi, coming home in tenth place for Williams.

Massa expressed in Abu Dhabi his desire to take up a role with the FIA: "We are discussing with some people from the FIA so I can do something. I am sure with the experience I have and related to motor racing, if I can give help I can do it."

At the FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris, it was revealed that Massa had been appointed as President of CIK/International Karting Commission. He will work alongside vice-president Kees van de Grint.

Massa also refused any further role within the FIA, including a role as a race steward. 2018 will be the first year since 1969 that a Brazilian driver hasn't taken up a place on the grid. Massa will return to racing next year, competing in the Brazilian Stock Car Championship.
