Massa Receives Award

Ferrari driver Felipe Massa has received the Bandini trophy named for famous Italian driver Lorenzo Bandini.
"The award is very important and prestigious," 26-year-old Massa said this week.   "It is usually given in the early stages of one's career and reflects also on how well you have done in the previous year's championship."  Massa added:   "I was extremely happy to accept it and I was given a very warm reception by the people in the town square for the ceremony."
Bandini was burned to death in an accident at Monte Carlo in 1967.
