Felipe Massa broke a record over the weekend although it had nothing to do with Formula 1.
The Brazilian led 964 of Ferrari’s road cars at the Silverstone circuit on Saturday - the largest such parade since 2008 when 490 cars were recorded participating at the Fuji Speedway Circuit in Japan.
“It’s a great honour for me, with so many cars all brought together on one race track, which produced an unprecedented spectacle for all Prancing Horse fans,” said Massa who drove a 458 Spider.
All the participants were mostly from the UK who had assembled at the circuit as a part of the Ferrari Racing Days with the British Ferrari Owners Club assisting in its organisation.
Ferrari donated £5 for every car in the parade to BEN, a British charity that supports employees from the motor industry and their family.
The latest feat is yet to be ratified as a Guinness World Record, which is expected to confirm the achievement by the end of next week.
