Felipe Massa has been honoured with this year's Lorenzo Bandini Award as a result of his impressive efforts for Ferrari last season.
The Brazilian will be handed the trophy at an event in Italy on May 6, the weekend before this year's Spanish Grand Prix.
Margherita Bandini, the widow of the Ferrari driver who died as a result of a crash in the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix, usually presents the trophy at the award ceremony in Bandini's home town of Brisighella.
The event usually takes place on the same weekend as the San Marino Grand Prix at nearby Imola, but the race's absence from the calendar this year has forced a change of plan.
The 'Trofeo Lorenzo Bandini' honours people for their dedication to motor racing and has been supported by the Formula One community since it was first presented in 1992. It is sponsored by the small town of Brisighella, where Bandini was born.
Previous winners of the trophy include Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, Jacques Villeneuve and Ferrari and Fiat boss Luca di Montezemolo.
