Felipe Massa has confirmed reports he is set to become a father for the first time later this year.

We revealed in May that the 28-year-old Ferrari star's wife Rafaela is pregnant with a boy that is due to be born in November.

The Brazilian said the due date is "perfect timing", due to the conclusion of the 2009 formula one season on 1 November in Abu Dhabi.

"Everything is going well," said Massa, "and it is a nice feeling knowing I am soon going to be a papa."
