Massa wins in charity karting event

Felipe Massa and Michael Schumacher at FlorianopolisFelipe Massa took a popular victory in the second leg of his charity karting event the International Challenge of Go-Kart Champions at Florianopolis in Brazil today.

The Brazilian beat his former Ferrari team-mate Michael Schumacher to victory by just 0.087 seconds - the pair having fought through the field as their third and first places in yesterday's opening heat had left them starting down the order on the partially reversed grid.

Schumacher's combination of a win and a second place made him the outright champion of the annual event, ahead of Massa, who was having his first competitive race since his Hungaroring accident in July.

Rubens Barrichello had led the early laps of today's heat and eventually finished fourth behind IndyCar driver Vitor Meira.
