With Ferrari pairing Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen, Formula One's annual game of musical chairs had, so far, left Brazilian veteran and 2013 Ferrari driver Felipe Massa without a team. Fortunately for Massa's fans, he's found a ride for next season, inking a three-year contract with Williams F1 that should allow his 11-year career in the top flight of open-wheel racing to carry on, according to a report from BBC Sport.

As expected, Felipe Massa has been transported back to his home country of Brazil following successful life-saving surgery at the AEK military hospital in Budapest. Speaking for the first time since being struck in the helmet by a loose spring during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix, a very thankful Massa said:
More good news on the Felipe Massa front today as reports from AEK military hospital in Budapest indicate that the Brazilian driver will be flown back to his home country via private jet on Monday. Previously, it was expected that the Ferrari pilot, who suffered a fractured skull after a loose spring impacted his helmet in qualifying at the Hungarian GP, would be taken to Pitié Salpêtrière hospital in Paris for further treatment.
More pieces are filled into the proverbial puzzle with each passing day as the 2007 Formula One season comes to a close, and next season's grid comes into focus.
